Summary

This is the first textbook that addresses plasma engineering in the aerospace, nanotechnology, and bioengineering fields from a unified stand point. It includes a large number of worked examples, end of chapter exercises, and historical perspectives. Accompanying the text is plasma simulation software covering the Particle in Cell (PIC) approach. Plasma Engineering is a textbook which covers the fundamentals of plasma physics at a level suitable for students using application examples. It contains the widest variety of applications of any text on the market, spanning the areas of aerospace engineering, nanotechnology, and nano-bioengineering. This is a highly practically useful text for courses on Plasma Engineering or Plasma Physics in departments of Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Physics. It is also useful as an introduction to plasma engineering and its applications for early career researchers and practicing engineers.
