Here is a collection of photographs from previous projects in
which we have participated
Static helium arc between carbon rods showing cathode and
anode glows during fullerene production.
Experimental setup for testing fullerene production in high-speed
High-pressure hydrogen arcjet used to produce polycrystalline
RF plasma with Langmuir probe used for determining time-resolved electron
densities and temperatures and their correlations with optical emission.
High-pressure photoionization plasma experiment mounted in
an absorber tunnel for microwave absorption studies. Photo by Robert Vidmar.

CCD image of a multilayer breakdown in low-pressure air using
intersecting and focused high-power short-pulse microwaves. Coustesy of LLNL
Open shutter photograph of a sparkboard discharge in atmospheric pressure
helium. The radiation is used in photoionization experiments. Photo by Judson
Photograph of the LBL Q-Machine used to determine charge-changing cross
sections in ion-ion collisions. Q-Machines form magnetically-confined thermally-ionized
alkali metal plasmas that are highly ionized and in thermal equilibrium.
