Physical Review A
PPPL applies quantum theory and Einstein's special relativity to plasma physics issues
Researchers at the US Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory have developed a theory of plasma waves that can infer these properties in greater detail than in standard approaches. The new research analyzes the plasma surrounding the pulsar by coupling Einstein's theory of relativity with quantum mechanics, which describes the motion of subatomic particles such as the atomic nuclei -- or ions -- and electrons in plasma.
