2021 Summer school suspended, See you again in 2022

It was a very difficult decision that had to be made to suspend this year's edition of the summer school. Last years edition was held online, which worked rather well given the the circumstances of the Covid-19 situation. However, the most important part of the school is also the networking of the students among each other and with the lecturers on site. This element was completely missing in the 2020 edition, which led to our decision to hold our breath for one year and better to celebrate seeing each other again on site in Bad Honnef in the fall of 2022. 

We would like to thank the organizers of the last two years, Ana Sobota and Richard Engeln, for two successful schools! They did a wonderful job.

There will be more information about the 2022 Summer School available here in spring 2022 at the latest.

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.


Well-known experts...

in the field will present lectures in the following areas:

  • fundamentals of plasma physics,
  • plasma sources,
  • thermal and low pressure plasmas,
  • atomic processes,
  • electron kinetics,
  • diagnostics and plasma spectroscopy,
  • modeling,
  • plasma-surface interactions,...


Venue: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany
