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.
