By Francis Chen
Francis F. Chen's occupation in plasma has prolonged over 5 many years. His textbook Introduction to Plasma Physics has been used around the world consistently considering 1974. he's the one physicist who has released considerably in either test and conception and on either magnetic fusion and laser fusion. As an outdoorsman and runner, he's deeply all for the surroundings. presently he enjoys poultry images and is a member of the Audubon Society.
