Yevgeny Raitses

Principal Research Physicist

Princeton Plasma Physics Lab

Yevgeny Raitses is a Principal Research Physicist at the US DOE Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). He received his PhD from the Technion- Israel Institute of Technology in 1997 before coming to PPPL in 1998. He has made significant contributions to the field of experimental plasma physics with applications to plasma thrusters, processing and synthesis plasmas, and plasma diagnostics. He has over 200 publications on these topics. His current research is focused on low temperature plasmas, plasma-wall interactions, plasma diagnostics and plasma applications for spacecraft propulsion, synthesis of nanomaterials, and materials processing. He is the Director of the DOE-funded Princeton Collaborative Low Temperature Plasma Research Facility (PCRF, which acts as a user facility leveraging low temperature plasma efforts at PPPL and Mechanical and Aerospace Department of the Princeton University. He is also leading a Laboratory for Nanosynthesis and Nanofabrication ( at PPPL.

Dr. Raitses is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He is also an Associate Editor of Journal of Applied Physics.
