Running away and radiating

Welcome to the Promotion lecture by Tünde Fülöp, Professor at Department of Applied Physics, Chalmers and the Jubilee lecture by Joan Decker, EPFL Lausanne, Schweiz and Jubilee Professor 2014 at Department of Applied Physics, Chalmers


Particle acceleration and radiation in plasmas is a fascinating subfield of physics which brings together electromagnetics, fluid dynamics, lasers, wave-particle interaction, relativistic effects and subatomic physics. Applications range from cancer therapy and lightning initiation, to fusion devices for large scale energy production. The two talks paint a broad picture of recent research in the above mentioned areas.

"It is one of the first duties of a Professor, in any subject, to exaggerate a little both the importance of his subject and his own place in it." (GH Hardy, A Mathematician's Apology).
