Victor Malka introduces EB4T to Nepalese audiences

Principal Investigator Prof. Dr. Victor Malka introduced the eBeam4Therapy project to Nepal’s scientific community thanks to his participation in the ‘Frontiers of Plasma Physics and Technology’ (FPPT) conference as well as an appearance on ‘Good Morning Nepal’.

Held from 13th to 17th March in the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu, the 10th edition of FPPT was co-hosted by Tribhuvan University and Kathmandu University.

The conference brought together prominent figures from the laser plasma physics domain to network, share their latest research findings, and host an array of panel discussions and presentations. Prof. Dr. Victor Malka was joined by upwards of 50 prominent speakers from all corners of the world.

Prof. Dr. Malka’s presentation, titled ‘Manipulating relativistic electrons with intense laser pulses – among the most innovative tools in modern sciences’ took place on 16th March.

FPPT was organised in collaboration with Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu University, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Institute de Fusión Nuclear Guillermo Velarde (IFN-GV), the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, and the South Asian Physics Foundation.

On the final day of the conference, Prof. Dr. Malka made his way to the Kantipur TV studios to make an appearance on daily morning show ‘Good Morning Nepal’.

The Principal Investigator, interviewed alongside fellow scientist Dr. Uddhav Chaulagain, used his time on-air to discuss his work in the laser plasma physics domain, the eBeam4Therapy project, and the projected benefits of such research.
