LAROUSSI'S ARTICLE ONE OF THE MOST DOWNLOADED FROM NATIONAL PHYSICS WEBSITE

A research article written in 2003 by Old Dominion University faculty member Mounir Laroussi and two colleagues at the University of California, San Diego, is still bringing them accolades.

The New Journal of Physics (NJP) informed Laroussi on Oct. 2 that his "Plasma Interaction with Microbes" is one of the most frequently downloaded articles in the history of the journal.

Recognition of the top downloaded articles coincided with the journal's announcement that it had received its one-millionth article download. The journal was founded in 1998 by the Institute of Physics and the German Physical Society.

In July, Essential Science Indicators named the NJP a "rising star" in physics for having the highest percentage increase in total citations in the field.
Laroussi's article is included in the collection of the journal's top five downloaded articles for each year that has been posted on the publication's Web site (accessed from an odu.edu address at http://www.iop.org/EJ/journal/-page=extra.top5/1367-2630).

Laroussi, an ODU associate professor with the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics and in the electrical and computer engineering department, is a leading plasma researcher. His innovations in the field include biological applications of plasma technology.
