Old Dominion University is always looking for ways in which professors of different disciplines can work together. Professor Mournir Laroussi, (left) electrical and computer engineering and Assistant Professor Venkat Maruthamuthu, mechanical and aerospace engineering, have found a way to generate a diffused plasma inside a chamber without applying any electrical power to the chamber. Since there are no electrodes inside the chamber, there is no contamination and no need for electrode replacement. Photo Chuck Thomas/ODU

Old Dominion University's Applied Research Center consists of an interdisciplinary team of researchers working on scientific and technological problems in the areas of thin films, laser and plasma applications, materials technology, and the emerging fields of nanotechnology, biomedical engineering, sensor science and technology, and MEMS. Projects at the Center are sponsored by federal agencies, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and various industries and national labs.
