Plasma engineering applies the unique properties of plasmas (ionized gases) to improve processes and performance over many fields such as materials processing, spacecraft propulsion, and nanofabrication. This textbook covers the fundamentals of plasma physics at a level suitable for an upper level undergraduate or graduate student, then goes on to provide the widest variety of applications of any text on the market, spanning the areas of aerospace engineering, nanotechnology, and nano-bioengineering. This is the first textbook that addresses plas.
