Abstract:

Atomic ions which are stored in electromagnetic fields are an example of nonneutral plasmas. Laser techniques allow control of plasma angular momentum and provide plasma cooling to temperatures much less than 1K. Using imaging techniques, plasma spatial information is achieved. Laser spectroscopic techniques allow measurement of plasma velocity distribution functions. Liquid and solid behavior of ion plasmas is studied....
