Some Uses for Plasma Waves

Nethanel Fisch, Princeton University

What is a Plasma Wave?  And what are some useful things that it can be used for?  This talk will explore how the simplest of waves
in plasma can be used for, among other things, to drive mega-amps of current, to divert mega-watts of power, or to mediate the next
generation of laser intensities.
