04.07. - 07.07.2018 I RUB Japan Science Days

From July 4 - 7 2018, top researchers, presidents, vice presidents and executives from university management and administration from the University of Tokyo, Osaka University, the University of Tsukuba and RUB meet to promote the fruitful exchange among them.

The RUB Japan Science Days will be each devoted to a guiding topic of high societal relevance that offers multi- and transdisciplinary approaches to teaching, research and transfer. This year - honoring a topic that is presently hotly debated in Japan and also in Germany - the Science Days are devoted to "Society 5.0 - Chances and Risks of Digital Transformation and the Responsibility of Universities".

Furthermore, a framework program from the RUB is aocated for the Japanese guests to learn more about science in Bochum and the Ruhr area in general.

A separate workshop with plasma scientists from Japan and Bochum finally resultet in a great exchange of both groups and new enrolled cooperations between different groups.


WissensNacht Ruhr

At 29th September 2018, the event WissensNacht Ruhr, which is located at seven different locations within the Ruhr Area takes place. We are going to present plasmas in the Blue Sqaure in Bochum. Everybody is welcome to join our exhibition.


SFB-TR 87 approved for third funding phase

The German Research Foundation approved the proposal of Prof. Peter Awakowicz from the Electrical Engineering Departement and his consortium concerning the funding of a collaborative research project with the title " Pulsed high power plasmas for the synthesis of nanostructured functional layers". Within the consortium, 20 research projects on different topics are addressed. Especially, two transfer projects with industrial partners is also approved. The funding period is from July 2018 until June 2022.


Japan - RUB Workshop

We are happy to announce the upcoming Japan - RUB Workshop between July 4th, 2018 and July 7th, 2018. Workshop of experts from the field of plasma from Japan and from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum are planned for an intesive exchange of knowledge. The plasma workshops will take place on July 4th, 2018 and July, 6th, 2018 including lab tours. Furthermore, a framework program from the RUB is allocated for the Japanese guests to learn more about science in Bochum and the Ruhr area in general.



19.03.2018 - IS Plama Prize for Prof. Uwe Czarnetzki

The 10th International Symposium Plasma (ISPlasma) took place between March 4th and March 8th at Meijo University, Nagoya, Japan. A newly invented prize was given "for outstanding achievements in the field of Plasma Science and its Applications as well as great contribution towards the continued success of ISPlasma/IC-PLANTS." This year, the prize was given for the first time to Prof. Uwe Czarnetzki.

The presented picture shows Prof. Mineo Hiramatsu, Meijo University, Chair Organizing Committee, Prof. Uwe Czarnetzki, Ruhr-Universiät Bochum, and Prof. Masaru Hori, Nagoya University.


09.03.2018 - DPG in Erlangen

On Monday, 4th March 2018, the 82nd Annual Conference of the DPG and DPG Spring Meeting started at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg in Erlangen. It took four days, where scientists from all over Germany met to discuss their newest results on atomic, molecular, plasma physics, and quatnum optics.

Three groups from Bochum also joined the traditional meeting with 1 poster presentation and 6 oral contributions from the experimental physics II group. The group of Prof. Czarnetzki presented 3 oral presentations and one poster presentation. Further, from the field of theoretical electrical engineering one oral and one poster presentation was contributed.

Beside the scientific program, social events like an EinsteinSlam or an award ceremony with interludes of musical accompanists.

SFB 1316

06.02.2018 Kick-Off Meeting

On February 5th and 6th the Kick-Off Meeting of the newly approved collaborative research centre, CRC 1316, took place at Beckmanns Hof in Bochum.

Nearly 40 scientists from the collaboration presented their research goals and started to discuss about scientific goals and collaborations between the different projects. 





16.10.2017 - International School on Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications

The traditional summer school on low temperature plasma physics will go on in Octobre next year. The summer school takes place in Physikzentrum in Bad Honnef and is from Octobre 6th, 2018 until Octobre 11th, 2018. After the school, the master class will be from Octobre 11th, 2018 until Octobre 13th, 2018.

Participants are welcomed to sign in for registration until June 15th, 2018. Due to limitation in the number of rooms at the Physikzentrum, the attendance is limited.
