International School on Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications

The aim of the course is aquaint students with the present status of the field of low temperature plasma physics. It is assumed that the students have followed introductory physics courses at their home university. However, the basic principles will be summarized at the beginning of the course. The course offers a broadening of knowledge in plasma physics and in the interaction of plasmas with surfaces including a description of advanced diagnostics. In addition, the students will be able to interact with the teachers of the course and they will meet fellow students from other universities in Europe and the rest of the world. Participants are invited to bring with them presentation material in form of posters.
