Prof. Arnaud Bultel
Dr A. Bultel obtained his PhD in Plasma Physics in 1994 at the University of Rouen on the behaviour of non-equilibrium nitrogen plasma boundary layers in the framework of the planetary atmospheric (re-)entry of spacecrafts. He became assistant professor at the University of Rouen in 1998. Then, he turned to modeling studies by developing collisional-radiative models supported by state-to-state approaches. He enlarged his topics by developing experimental and modeling/theoretical works dedicated to laser-induced plasmas. This activity is mainly focused on the multi-elemental characterization of nuclear fusion-relevant samples in thermophysical conditions where plasma non-equilibium effects play a significant role. Currently, he leads a team of ~ 10 people.
