The Plasma and Environmental Physics Laboratory is an experimentalist group under Professor Alfred Wong with 30 staff, researchers, and students. The laboratory operates a 14,000 sq. ft. facility on the UCLA campus and the 120 acre High Power Auroral Stimulation Observatory (HIPAS) near Fairbanks Alaska.
Two year intern appointment in a management position for a technical lab. Applicant should be well-acquainted with computer management tools and personal skills. Technical background is important. Position for Bachelor degree holder with intention to go into business school after two years.
A high-temperature plasma is used to destroy hazardous and/or toxic wastes.
This device is intended for use in cleaning up radioactive wastes by separating radioactive from non-radioactive materials.
A plasma process using ion cyclotron resonance for the enrichment of medically useful isotopes.
Basic Plasma Physics
Experiments on non-linear wave growth, beam-plasma interactions, parametric instabilities, caviton collapse, radio frequency heating, dusty plasmas, and laser-induced fluorescence (LIF).
Experimental investigation of the process of ozone destruction by CFC's and methods to reverse the process.
High Power Auroral Stimulation Observatory HIPAS
Eight antennas like those in the picture are used to modify the ionosphere with high power radio waves near Fairbanks, Alaska. Radio wave soundings, optical diagnostics and other techniques are used to probe the ionosphere.
