The third annual issue of Spera, Hope’s pulication for faculty research, scholarship and creative performance, highlighted Dr. Stephen Remillard’s research studying microplasmas, how they can be generated, and their properties.
“There’s a very limited understanding of plasma starting in very small places,” Remillard says. “That’s what’s neat about microplasma: everything we knew about macroplasmas has to be modified, and that’s what we’re working on.”
From Industrial Glitch to Research Focus
Dr. Remillard’s work with students in the Microwave Lab is currently supported by a three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.
