In order to understand and improve plasmas, we are using a blend of experimental and theoretical/numerical techniques. On this page we provide a non-exhaustive overview of these methods.
Imaging and passive spectroscopy
The most straightforward optical techniques that can be used for plasma diagnostics are optical imaging and emission spectroscopy.Read more
Apart from investigation the emission properties of plasmas more direct information can often be obtained by laser diagnostics.Read more
Modelling and numerical simulation
In order to understand the plasma and be able to predict how it will respond to a change of the control parameters, you need to...Read more
