International School on Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications
The goal of the week-long course is to introduce participants to the current state of the art in low-temperature plasma physics. It is assumed that the students have followed introductory physics courses at their home university. The course has been held at the Physics Center Bad Honnef, where participants and teachers live under one roof. Lectures have been held here and a lively exchange among each other is also given.
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.
We are looking forward to the 27th International Plasma School on "Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications" (October 05 - October 10, 2024) and its Master Class “Plasmas, liquids, and nanomaterials” (October 11 - October 12, 2024).
The school provides an introduction to the fundamentals of plasma physics and gives an overview of the different research areas ranging from modeling of fluids to plasma spectroscopy or high pressure plasmas. An intensive exchange with the lecturers and other students from the research area is possible and desired. The School is intended for first-year doctoral students or final-year master's students, whereas during the Master Class the hot topic of “Plasmas, liquids, and nanomaterials” will be discussed up to the level of forefront research.
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,
- plasma-surface interactions,...
- Comprehensive Learning: Engage in a dynamic curriculum that covers the fundamentals of low temperature plasma physics, giving participants a solid foundation.
