About PSTI

From the Director

The Plasma Science and Technology Institute (PSTI) at UCLA represents the largest university-based research effort in the world related to the forth state of matter known as plasma. It is an Organized Research Unit involving 36 faculty and about 150 researchers, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students from a variety of departments.

The topics covered within the PSTI include fusion energy, space and astrophysical plasmas, advanced accelerators and radiation sources, plasma-materials interactions, and space propulsion. Unparalleled in its combination of breadth and depth, the PSTI offers unique opportunities in research and education.
