Established in 1959, the objective of DPP is the advancement and dissemination of the knowledge, understanding, and applications of plasmas—assemblages of charged particles of natural and laboratory origin. Research in pursuit of controlled nuclear fusion holds the promise of providing limitless, clean, sustainable energy to the world. Plasma research also encompasses the study of the fundamental interactions of particles and light in plasmas, the study of astrophysical plasmas from planetary cores to stars, new theoretical and computational techniques to describe plasmas, and the practical application of plasmas for manufacturing, medicine, and agriculture.
