Brookhaven Lecture

"485th Brookhaven Lecture: 'The Plasma Window'"

Presented by Ady Hershcovitch, Collider-Accelerator Department

Wednesday, March 20, 2013, 4:00 pm — Berkner Hall Auditorium

Space…the final frontier. Think back to a Star Trek or Star Wars scene taking place in a space station. Remember ships taking off through large bay doors directly into the vast, empty void of space while people stood on the decks breathing freely without scuba tanks or air supplies on their backs? Sure that was science fiction, but the technology that could separate the empty space outside from the air inside without a sheet of glass or metal is, in fact, real. This technology��""called a plasma window"��"was developed at Brookhaven Lab and is being used at scientific research facilities around the world. The plasma window has made a difficult but ultra-powerful welding technique more versatile too. On Wednesday, March 20, join Ady Hershcovitch of the Collider-Accelerator Department, for the 485th Brookhaven Lecture, titled "The Plasma Window." All are invited to attend this free talk, which is open to the public and will be held in Berkner Hall at 4 p.m. Refreshments will be offered before and after the lecture. Visitors to the Lab age 16 and older must carry a photo ID while on site. To join Hershcovitch for dinner at a restaurant off site after the talk, contact Sandy Asselta (Ext. 4550).

Hosted by: Allen Orville
