A team of researchers from the University of Jena has observed the successful formation and interaction of highly ionized krypton plasma, using femtosecond coherent ultraviolet light and a novel four-dimensional model. The research may ultimately deliver insight into the physical formation of the universe.
Plasma is relatively easy to generate in a lab setting, though studying it is nearly impossible; methods capable of capturing ionization states and density are extremely limited. The study of ionized matter is crucial to understanding the relationships at play in forming the universe, as 85% of observable matter consists of dark matter.
