Plasma physics research, both experimental and theoretical, centers on nonneutral plasmas. We have both pure-electron and pure-ion plasma experiments. Our pure-ion plasma experiments are currently centered around measuring the half-life of Beryllium-7 in an ionized state. We also have substantial numerical modeling efforts in support of that goal. Our pure-electron plasma studies are aimed at understanding normal modes of oscillation in these plasmas in both the linear and nonlinear regimes.
