Center for Microplasma Science and Technology

The Nation’s Only Center Dedicated to the Study of Microplasmas

This is it! Established with funding from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) we are the nation’s only center dedicated to the advanced research, development, and education in the emerging field of microplasma research.

Often referred to as the fourth state of matter, the tiny discharges of ionized gas known as plasmas hold tremendous power to improve everything from water purification to medical research, energy efficiency and even electronic display screens. Funded by the Department of Defense, the Center for Microplasma Science & Technology (CMST) at Saint Peter’s University is a designated Center of Excellence and the National laboratory for advanced research, development, and education in the emerging field of microplasmas.

CMST engages in sponsored research programs dedicated to improving our Nation’s scientific and technological capabilities. As an affiliated entity of Saint Peter’s Department of Applied Science and Technology (DAST), CMST supports the three core Institutional missions of Research, Education, and Public Service.
