Physics of Strongly Coupled Plasma

Vladimir Fortov, Igor Iakubov, and Alexey Khrapak


This book concerns the physics of plasma at high density, which is compressed so strongly that the effects of interparticle interactions, nonideality, govern its behavior. The interest in this non-traditional plasma has emerged during the last few years when states of matter with high concentration of energy, constituting the basis of the modern technologies and facilities, became accessible for impulse experiments. The greatest part of the Universe matter is in this exotic state. In this book, the methods of strongly coupled plasma generation and diagnostics are considered. The experimental r ... More

Keywords: nonideal plasma, methods of generation, thermodynamics, electrical conductivity, optical properties, metallization of dielectrics, hydrogen metallization, nonneutral plasmas, dusty plasmas
