Planning of the upcoming summer school in times of Corona

Although the situation concerning the Covid-19 pandemic changes our daily business at the moment, we are trying to plan the upcoming international school on low temperature plasma physics for October 2020. 


We hope that the situation will be stable that it can take place at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef (Germany) – as in the last seventeen years. 


At the moment, different scenarios regarding the school are possible, which we cannot foresee today. In case that travelling will be prohibited still in July, we would change the format to an online course (or as a last resort cancel the event). However, we will open the registration today and try to carry out the school if possible. 


Since the teachers of the school confirmed their participation, we are going to enroll the registration and decide in July how to proceed. However, a late registration is no option since the overall process is time-consuming. So, a certain lead time is mandatory.


We kindly ask you to take note of this event, communicating it to those of your colleagues and/or students who might be interested. 

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



Organisation of the Summer School

The 24th Summer School (2020) on plasma physics is organized by Richard Engeln and Ana Sobota from the TU Eindhoven (link to PMP and EPG).
