Grand challenges in low-temperature plasma physics
A plasma is a hot ionized gas and classification of this fourth state of matter can be initially done using the basic concept of temperature. A prime example is the Sun which exhibits a very hot plasma in its core with temperatures of about 1.5 × 107 K (a result of fusion reactions with a proton density of ~1026 cm−3) and cooler surface temperatures of about 6000 K : the Solar wind originates from the Solar Corona, expands into the universe and impacts the Earth' magnetosphere and...[Show more]
