Research Activities

In addition to developing scientific software, our staff is involved in research projects involving collaborations with several U. S. national laboratories and universities. Research efforts at Prism are concentrated in the following areas:

  • Atomic physics
  • Plasma physics
  • Spectroscopy
  • Hydrodynamics
  • Radiation and heat transfer
  • Quantitative analysis
Many of these efforts involve theoretical and computational studies of laboratory and astrophysical plasmas. Current research activities include:

  • Simulation and analysis of spectra (x-ray, EUV, UV, visible) obtained in z-pinch and laser-produced plasma experiments
  • Development of efficient x-ray and EUV radiation sources
  • Radiative and hydrodynamic properties of LTE and non-LTE laboratory plasmas
  • Atomic and spectral properties of laboratory and astrophysical plasmas
