4-STAR: Fourth State Applications Research Group
Welcome to the website for the 4-Star research group, led by Steven Shannon at NC State University.

We do fundamental and applied research in plasma science and application. Our research spans plasma diagnostics, source design, simulation of plasmas and plasma material interaction, and the treatment of gases, liquids, and solids for a wide array of interesting applications from fusion to agriculture.
