Etymology[edit]

From Late Latin plasma (literally mold), from Ancient Greek πλάσμα (plásma, something formed).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

plasma (countable and uncountable, plural plasmas or plasmata)

  1. (physics) A state of matter consisting of partially ionized gas and electrons.
    • 2020, Don Lincoln, The Large Hadron Collider, Johns Hopkins University Press, →ISBN, page 198:
      Oxygen and hydrogen nuclei are intermixed with free electrons. The whole mix is electrically neutral. This is actually considered a new stage of matter called a plasma. You can see an example of an electrically produced plasma in a fluorescent light bulb or in a plasma television.
  2. (hematology) A clear component of blood or lymph containing fibrin.
  3. (hematology) Blood plasma, free of suspended cells, used in transfusions.
  4. (mineralogy) A variety of green quartz, used in ancient times for making engraved ornaments.
  5. (medicine, dated) A mixture of starch and glycerin, used as a substitute for ointments.
  6. (computer graphics, demoscene) A visual effect in which cycles of changing colours are warped in various ways to give the illusion of liquid organic movement.
    • 1999, "Rage Matrix", Coding plasma demos....HELP! (on newsgroup comp.programming)
      Has anyone here written a plasma demo in C/C++ who would be willing to explain to me exactly how it works?
    • 2005, Tamás Polgár, Freax: The Brief History of the Demoscene (volume 1, page 126)
      However, it displayed some unique copper magic routines and plasma effects.
    • Jonathan Weinel, Explosions in the Mind (page 139)
      This creates the classic 'plasma' effect seen in many demoscene videos.
