What is plasma? Where do we find it? What can we do with it? How does plasma beneficially affect our lives?

In this series of videos, these and other questions about plasmas will be answered. The videos originated from interviews of leading plasma scientists and engineers from around the world who presented MIPSE seminars at the University of Michigan. They speak about their own internationally leading plasma research, new technologies that will shape our future that use plasmas, and how plasmas are important to all of us every day. The videos were produced by the Michigan Institute for Plasma Science and Engineering, with sponsorship by the National Science Foundation and Department of Energy Office of Fusion Energy Science.

A captioned version of each video is available on YouTube.
