Research and teaching “Plasma Green Energy Systems and Technologies”

Location: Photonics Building, ECE Department, Boston University, via zoom meeting:

Speaker: Professor Min-Chang Lee ECE Department, Boston University Subject: “Plasma Green Energy Systems and Technologies”

Abstract: Research and teaching “Plasma Green Energy Systems and Technologies” will be discussed. The addressed work is a portion of the integrated research and academic programs established at Boston University, including plasma photonics and nanotechnology, plasma medicine, spacecraft propulsion, solar and plasma fusion as green energy sources and technologies. Singled out for discussion is our research on electromagnetic wave-plasma interactions applicable to plasma fusion and solar powered microwave transmissions systems. These academic and research activities are highlighted in an IEEE paper entitled “Teaching and Research on PlasmaBased Green Technologies and Some Environmental Issues” by Min-Chang Lee, published in Proceedings of 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Technology and Society (ISTAS 2019), ISBN: 978-1-7281-5480-0.

About the Speaker: Professor Min-Chang Lee has been teaching and conducting research in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Boston University since 1991. He has developed an integrated educational and research program at Boston University in plasma-based green technologies, including theoretical study, field experiments, and laboratory simulation experiments. Professor Lee is the current Chair of Nuclear and Plasma Science Society (NPSS), Chair of Society on Social Implications of Technology in IEEE Boston Section, and Faculty Advisor of BU IEEE-HKN.
