Howdy, and welcome to the website of the Plasma Engineering and Diagnostics Laboratory at Texas A&M University. The purpose of this site is to share our research and promote future awareness into the field of plasmas. We do this with the hope of spurring the interest of future scientists and engineers and also to provide a contact for collaborative opportunities.

Our research is focused on the experimental study of microscale and low temperature plasmas and devices which plasmas. The results and discoveries of this research have far reaching consequences in fields ranging from medicine and health, to integrated circuit manufacturing, to fossil fuel reforming. More specific information on projects related to non-thermal plasmas, microplasmas, nanoplasmas, and plasmas in ambient gases and liquids can be found on the Research Topics page or among our publications. 

Please browse the site to find out more about plasmas, our research, and the people involved. Hopefully, after touring our website you will be more interested in this research field and want to learn more.  If you have questions or comments please contact me. Have fun and enjoy your stay.
