Prof. Fujioka received the PPCF Dendy Award
Prof. Fujioka of ILE and Dr. Joao Santos of Bordeaux University, France, received the PPCF Dendy Europe-Asia Pacific Award for Outstanding Research Collaboration in Research Collaboration in Plasma Physics.
This award is given to European researchers in the field of plasma physics and The PPCF Dendy Europe-Asia Pacific Award for Outstanding Research Collaboration in Plasma Physics is given to researchers in Europe and the Asia Pacific Rim who have collaborated in the field of plasma physics.
The intercontinental collaboration is recognized for its outstanding achievements in significantly magnetising the inner region of a coil by the generation of a strong (kilotesla) laser-driven magnetic field. The employment of capacitor-coil targets, driven by a high energy laser pulse, constitutes a pioneering step towards a new testbed for a broad range of laboratory applications. These span the fields of laser-driven inertial confinement fusion, laboratory astrophysics, high energy density laboratory plasmas, and laser-based particle acceleration.
