An international symposium this month is celebrating the labs's 50th anniversary
The Cornell Beam Research Accelerator is used in the Laboratory of Plasma Studies to deliver 150-nanosecond current pulses to various configurations of metal foils, cylinders and gas puffs in order to produce high energy density plasmas
The Cornell-based Laboratory of Plasma Studies has been granted $15M for research. “The funding enables LPS’s Multi-University Center of Excellence for Pulsed-Power-Driven High-Energy-Density Science to advance its research program in collaboration with scientists from the University of California, San Diego, Imperial College (London), the Lebedev Physical Institute (Moscow), the University of Michigan, Princeton University and the Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel).”
The lab is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and its researchers have enjoyed a long an fruitful research partnership with Weizmann Institute scientists, including the Institute’s Prof. Yitzhak Maron.
Israel BDS – building dialogue through science – aims to promote the kind of international collaboration that can lead to true understanding between people. Israel BDS stands for the free and open exchange of ideas among scientists everywhere. By reporting on the benefits of Israeli-international scientific research and the web of connections that these scientists create around the world, Israel BDS takes a vibrant approach to highlighting the global necessity of continued international scientific collaboration.
