Happy New Year 2004
Happy New Year everyone. I can't believe
that our website is going into its third year already. All our staffs
and students from CPL had a great christmas and new year holiday. But
we are gearing up for a series of events coming up within the next few
New Year's Eve firework this year at the Sydney Opera
House was spectacular.
Firstly, two of our talented students,
Darren Engwirda and Cameron Ford, are working already to further their
investigations from their previous projects. Darren will be working on
vortex motions in complex plasma. And Cameron will be applying his simulation
model for cluster stabilty on experimental data. Their results are currently
being organised at the moment ready for publications.
Secondly, Dr. Kostya Ostrikov and Dr.
Sergey Vladimirov have succeeded in obtaining an ARC grant for their project.
So we welcome Kostya to be working with the CPL team.
Thirdly, the CPL team will be attending
the 13th Gaseous Electronics
Meeting (GEM XIII) between the 1st-5th of February at the Murramarang
Resort of Bateman's Bay. Dr. Neil Cramer, Dr. Alex Samarian, Dr. Kostya
Ostrikov, William Tsang, Darren Engwirda and I will all be presenting
at the meeting. The timetable can be access here.
I will be reporting on the event after 5th of February.
Lastly, I am in the process of writing
up the thesis for my Ph.D. But don't worry. I will be updating the website
as regular as possible.
