Lecture Time Speaker Lecture subject
16:15-16:30 Adi Hanuka Capturing Sub-Relativistic Particles in an Optical Booster
Progress during the last decade in wall-plug to light efficiency of lasers makes them serious competitors to current mic...
16:30-16:45 Tsafrir Armon Chirped nonlinear resonance dynamics in phase space
Passage through and capture into resonance in systems with slowly varying parameters is one of the outstanding problems...
16:45-17:00 Marko Cvejic Spectroscopic measurements of the azimuthal magnetic field evolution in Z-pinch with pre-embedded axial magnetic field
We investigate the fundamental phenomena of magnetic-field flux and magnetized plasma compression by plasma implosion.
17:00-17:15 Yehuda Meir Underwater microwave ignition of hydrophobic thermite powder by virtue of the recently discovered bubble marble effect
Following our previous studies on localized microwave heating (LMH) effects, including ejection of dusty plasmas in
17:15-17:30 Mikhail Nitishinskiy Spectroscopy of light emission from a plasma generated by a converging strong shock wave in water
Convergence of strong shock waves (SSW) in water results in formation of a warm dense state of water in the origin of im...
17:30-17:45 Asher Yahalom Topological conservation laws in non-barotropic magnetohydrodynamics
Cross helicity is not conserved in non-barotropic magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) (as opposed to barotropic or incompressible...
