The PLASMAScience’s three major areas of research are: « Plasmas and Energy » « Plasmas and Space », « Plasmas and Society »:

  • The topic « Plasmas and Energy », which focuses on key plasma processes related to energy loss in large international facilities dedicated to thermonuclear fusion, and also explores tracks in nanotechnology for solar energy;
  • The topic « Plasmas and Space », which is focused on space plasmas and more specifically on energy conversion and dissipation at different plasma scales. It also includes plasma propulsion for new generations of « all-electric » satellites;
  • The topic « Plasmas and Society », which explores laser-produced plasmas and cold plasmas, and also develops applications in a wide range of fields ranging from medicine (medical imaging, therapy, etc.), to nanotechnology, aeronautics, environment and agriculture.
