Ph.D. UC San Diego, 1965
My area of research is theoretical plasma physics, and I am particularly
interested in plasmas with a single sign of charge (nonneutral plasmas).
Here at UCSD we have experiments that
involve the confinement of pure electron plasm
pure ion plasmas, and positron plasmas.
Much of my theoretical work is
motivated by and is strongly correlated with these experiments.
For more information on nonneutral plasmas and my research, please

For a simple overview of the field, see the Physics Today article, "Trapped Plasmas with a Single Sign of Charge (From Coulomb Crystal s to 2D Turbulence and Vortex Dynamics)."
