Center for Materials Under eXtreme Environment
Center for Materials Under eXtreme Environments (CMUXE) is a research unit at Purdue University aimed at promoting nuclear, material science, plasma research and education. Members of the CMUXE group perform basic and applied research in a wide variety of interdisciplinary fields. The major thrust area is the interactions of high-intensity, modulated energy beams: electromagnetic radiation, plasma, electrons, ions and other particle sources (i.e. clusters, molecules) with matter. The CMUXE combines advanced integrated computational tools (i.e. HEIGHTS simulation package and state-of-the art experimental devices).
