CPL Visits Complex Plasma Research in China


Dalian University of Technology (大连理工大学), or DUT, is located in the beautiful costal city of Dalian. It is directly supervised by the National Ministry of Education. Founded in 1949, DUT has grown significantly into one of the key universities in China. The University has expertise in a number of technical disciplines Engineering, Architecture, Computer Science and Software Engineering. The University is composed of 9 schools and 27 departments. Since 1978, DUT has won 738 various awards for its achievements in scientific and technological researches, 6 of which were National Natural Science Award, 7 National Invention Award, and 20 awards in science and technology.

The campus is green, shady and peaceful. Many state leaders had visited the university including the former Chinese president Jiang Zemin and current Chinese president Hu Jintao. The campus is large and has comprehensive modern teaching and scientific research equipment. The University campus includes a sports ground, visiting lecturer hostel and an international class hotel.

Within DUT, it is the State Key Lab. of Materials Mod. by Laser, Ion & Electron Beams at the Physics Department which is currently conducting simulation work on complex plasma. Experimental work using CCP and ICP has just initiated.
