Plasma Diagnostics and Optical Emission Spectroscopy

Posted on: January 28th, 2020

Plasma is an ionized gas under pressure and subjected to intense heating or electromagnetic fields to the point that electrons and positive ions are unbound. Plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter, but it does not exist on Earth naturally and must be generated by applying heat and pressure. What makes plasma…
