You do not know what a plasma is ? Do not worry, we will give you some information to better understand this complex and fascinating environment !
A plasma can be seen as the fourth state of matter, but already we evoke a controversial subject! It is a gas to which enough energy is transmitted to be ionized and become an electrical conductor. Plasma is the most common state of matter in the universe (99% of the universe), but it is not naturally present on Earth.
Artificial plasmas are used in a very large and varied number of industrial applications and constitute a dynamic and multidisciplinary research topic. You will find more information in the career opportunities section.
