Ruzic and IPI featured in Limitless
NPRE professor David Ruzic and his Illinois Plasma Institute have been featured in the Fall 2023 issue of Limitless, the Grainger College of Engineering's biannual magazine. In the article, Ruzic talks about IPI's mission to "rethink existing pathways to commercialization of new technologies developed in academic research settings.”
The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, working with Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation, is working on a project that would bring a microreactor to campus.

Abel Bliss Professor of Engineering
Professor Ruzic currently heads the Center for Plasma-Material Interactions (CPMI) whose primary objective is to study plasma-material interactions relevant to fusion, semiconductors, and plasma manufacturing through a combination of computational and experimental means. His research interests also include atomic properties of potential first-wall materials and modeling of edge-plasma atomic physics.
