Bio: Yevgeny Raitses

Yevgeny Raitses is a Principal Research Physicist at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). He received his PhD from the Technion- Israel Institute of Technology in 1997 before coming to PPPL in 1998. He has made significant contributions to the field of experimental plasma physics with applications to plasma thrusters, processing and synthesis plasmas, and plasma diagnostics. He has over 200 publications on these topics. His current research is focused on plasma-wall interactions, control of cross-field discharges, electron-beam generated plasmas for materials processing and plasma propulsion, plasma-based technologies for synthesis of nanomaterials and sustainability, and dusty plasmas. He is the Director of the Princeton Collaborative Research Facility, the Head of the PPPL Hall Thruster Experiment (HTX) and Laboratory for Plasma Nanosynthesis (LPN).

Dr. Raitses is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He is also an Associate Editor of Journal of Applied Physics.
