6.11.17- Workshop "Plasma Theory"

A special workshop on plasma theory ranging from astrophysical topics to fusion science has been organized by Prof. Grauer from TPI. Special guests were Dr. Daniel Told from the IPP Helmholtz Group on Computational Plasma Physics and Dr. Moritz Püschel from the University of Texas/University of Wisconsin.

8.10.2017 International School on Plasma Physics started

The 21st International School on Low Temperature Plasma Physics started in Bad Honnef. The School is attended by 65 students from 16 nations. 22 teachers from all over the world talk about basics and forefront plasma physics during the 5 days of the Plasma School.

The scientific Chairmen are Olivier Guiatella and Anne Bourdon from CNRS/LPP in France.

At Friday, 12th October the Master Class with the title New approaches for plasma/surface interaction studies will take place.







09.06.2017 - IWM 2017

The IWM 2017 was in the Riessersee Hotel in Garmisch-Partenkirchen from June 6-9, 2017. The workshop with familiar atmosphere was a great success for participants as well as for the organization team. Great discussion around the individual sessions and contributions made the four days workshop special. Also, the social program with a hiking tour and a visit of castel Linderhof contributed to the overall success of the workshop.

Within the workshop was the final symposium of the Marie Curie - Initial Training Network - Reactive Atmospheric Plasma Processing (

The next IWM 10 will take place in Kyoto from May 21st until May 24th, 2019.


15.05.2017 - Radiohalos of spiral galaxies - the impact of CHANG-ES in Bochum

Between June 6th and 10 th, 2017 the meeting concerning Radiohalos of spiral galaxies - the impact of CHANG-ES takes place in Bochum. The research group of Prof. Dettmar is coordinating group. The meeting is distributed over four days, where scientists from the CHANG-ES group as well as guests will come together. 

The Galaxy survey “Continuum HAlos in Nearby Galaxies – an Evla Survey (CHANG-ES)“ was observed at the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA radio telescope), New Mexico, USA. It contains a galaxy sample of significant size over a variety of angular spatial scales, which will help to address fundamental questions regarding radio halos and magnetic fields in spiral galaxies. The galaxies were observed at the two low frequencies, 1.5 GHz (20 cm wavelength) and 6 GHz (6 cm wavelength). CHANG-ES can also exploit the wide bandwidths that are provided by the EVLA. These wide bandwidths permit enormous improvements in continuum sensitivity. In addition, the wide bands provide a wealth of spectral information that will be unique to this survey. Moreover, CHANG-ES is the first survey of edge-on galaxies for which all polarization products will be obtained, providing important information on halo magnetic fields (Irwin et al. 2012).
