"Plasma Applications in Materials Science: Evaporation of Tungsten in High-Energy Plasma Flows"

Abstract: To study the behavior of tungsten at high temperatures experimentally, the high power ablative pulsed plasma thruster at the Kurchatov Institute in Moscow was used. Such extreme conditions can occur in facilities used for nuclear fusion, especially Tokamaks. The experimental results were used to improve the numerical and analytical modelling of evaporation of metals

BIO: Jens Schmidt is a research assistant in CASPER as part of Baylor's international collaboration with the Institute of Space Systems at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. He earned both his bachelor of science and master of science degrees in aerospace engineering from the University of Stuttgart. Mr. Schmidt participated in research at the National Research Institute "Kurchatov Institute" in Moscow, Russia from October 2016 to December 2016.
