About CPMI

Our primary objective is to study plasma-material interactions relevant to fusion, semiconductors, and plasma manufacturing through a combination of computational and experimental means. Projects are supported by both government and commercial partners to further the application and knowledge of plasma physics.

CPMI hired a professional video company as part of a Materials Research Society project to tell about our Center. This video is an excellent introduction to the work, people, technology, and science being done. Please watch!

CPMI is currently made up of 6 faculty members, 2 post-doctoral students, and over 30 graduate and undergraduate students.

Please contact Center Director David Ruzic (druzic@illinois.edu) if you are interested in working with us.
