HEDS Latest News
The liquid sheets – less than 100 water molecules thick – will let researchers probe chemical, physical and biological processes, and even the nature of water itself, in a way they could never do before.
Scientists Have Overestimated Meteor Sizes
First demonstration of high-pressure metastability mapping with ultrafast X-ray diffraction shows objects aren’t as large as previously thought.
The Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowship is sponsored by the NASA Living With a Star program and is designed to train the next generation of researchers in the emerging field of Heliophysics. John "Jack" Eddy (1931-2009) was a pioneering solar researcher, and was honored with the debut of the Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2009. The fellowship will support me for postdoctoral research at Princeton University, hosted by Professor Amitava Bhattacharjee.

HEDS researchers have observed the Weibel instability that is responsible for magnetic field generation and believed to be important for the early stages of generating cosmic rays
3D simulation showing the interaction of the laser with the hydrogen jet and the development of strong (100 MG) filamentary magnetic fields on the rear side
New experiments on the Draco laser (Germany) and the Texas Petawatt have successfully completed indicating high-energy laser produced protons. These experiments are motivated by large-scale 3D particle in cell simulations. The simulations indicate that the interaction of an intense short-pulse laser beam with a cryogenic hydrogen target is capable of producing a proton beam with energies up to 60 MeV.
