The Department of Physics is offering this new elective course to both undergraduate and graduate students. The class is scheduled for MWF at 2:00-2:50pm in LP 110. Please see the flyer for more information.
For more information, contact Dr. Trevor Burris at firstname.lastname@example.org It is recommended that students have completed PHYS 180/181 before enrolling.
There were 54 attendees (many pictured above). The majority of US attendees are supported by DOE/NNSA.
Students and postdocs from four universities (UNR, UCSD, UM, and Cornell) have been a very important part of the workshop. For this second meeting there were 22 students and 3 postdocs. The RHEDP workshop covered the registration fees and travel expenses for students and the registration fees for postdocs.
Among the senior participants were scientists from Naval Research Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory, as well as from two private sector companies, and faculty from four universities (UNR, UCSD, UM, and UCB).
The Technical Program Committee which consisted of university faculty, lab scientists, and an international member who jointly worked in preparing the exciting and excellent quality program of RHEDP 2013.
There were a total of 53 presentations with 28 invited oral talks in three sub-topic areas: “Theoretical Modeling and Diagnostics”, “Laser Produced Plasmas”, and “Z- and X-Pinches”. In addition there was a poster session with 25 presentations. There were 22 presentations by students or post-doctoral attendees, and 8 of these were oral. The presentations have highlighted progress in the field, while identifying current issues and conferring on future directions.
The interaction between the students (pictured below) and senior attendees occurred throughout the entire span of the workshop including the poster session, all breakfasts and lunches. We have received very positive responses from the students about the format of the conference and their interactions with faculty and scientists at national laboratories.
The proceedings of the RHEDP 2013 will be published in the Special Topic Section of Physics of Plasmas as a collection of the invited papers.
