Marc Böke

BökeMarc Böke was born in Bochum, Germany, on November 15, 1972. He received his PhD degree in Physics at Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) with a PhD thesis dealing with Lithium atoms as probes for reactive plasmas. After his PhD he worked as executive secretary of Arbeitsgemeinschaft Plasmaphysik (APP) &
Center of Excellence Plasma Science and Technology (CPST) at Ruhr-University Bochum. He is PI in several collaborative research projects at the Research Department “Plasmas with Complex Interactions” at RUB and works on diagnostic methods of low temperature plasmas, physics of microplasmas and
plasma technology (e.g. plasma coatings on polymers). As a co-founder of a spin-off company in the field of plasma technology he was involved in the design of plasma sources for coating, functionalization or sterilization applications. Since 2001 he is responsible for the organization and the scientific concept of the school.
