About the book

Plasma is the most widespread form of the fourth state of matter, comprising more than 99% of the universe. Plasma is used to disinfect clothing and sterilize surgical equipment due to its antibacterial properties. This book is proposed to provide an advanced understanding of plasma physics and its importance in science and engineering. The book aims to be useful for everyone interested in the current development of plasma theory. The book will contain invited chapters from the experts, who are working on plasma waves, terahertz waves, solitons, higher-order harmonic generation, and dusty plasmas. The microplasma technology can be applied to generate and detect THz sources. The laser-induced microplasma is used to produce terahertz radiation with a wide frequency spectrum. The electric propulsion system is also based on the discharge of plasma which is used to produce high exhaust velocity. This book will serve as a reference source for plasma physics researchers. The reader is expected to have had experience with basic electrodynamics, including Maxwell’s equations and the propagation of plane waves in space.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Blanka Gugic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
