Basic Plasma Physics: Course 2, History of Plasma Physics
I am publishing the second in a series of courses in Plasma Physics, A brief History of Plasma Physics. It is interesting that the term plasma was first used by Langmuir in 192o’s, less than a hundred years ago. The contribution made by plasma to our everyday life is now quite remarkable. Everything from Laptops to iPads owe there existence to plasma processes and plasma technology. The range of products that depend on plasma processes grows every year. I try to keep us all abreast of the more interesting. See for example a recent post on plasma in the home.
