Guests 2017

08.10.2017 - Prof. Ferreira at PD Dr. Horst Fichtner's group

In the frame of the bilateral German-South African BMBF-NRF foundation Prof. Dr. Stefan Ferreira from North-West-University, Campus Potchefstroom is going to visit the group of PD Dr. Horst Fichtner in Bochum between 19th and 25th November 2017. After 2016, it is the second visit of Prof. Ferreira in Germany within the fruitful collaboration.






26.04.2017 - Roeland Schelfhout visits research group applied plasma physics

Being part of the Cod-to-Doc program in the SFB-TR 87, Vincent Layes from the research group applied plasma physics visited the research group of Prof. Depla from the Ghent University in September 2015. Now the PhD student from Ghent University, Roeland Schelfhout, came to work together with Vincent Layes at the RUB from June 19th, until June 30th, 2017. He had a seminar talk about "The reactive sputtering process from a target point of view" on June 29th, 2017.

The scientific goal of both PhD canditates for this time is "Thorough XPS investigation of the poisoning evolution along the racetrack for an aluminum target, sputtered in an argon/oxygen atmosphere in both standard DC sputtering as well as in HiPIMS."

27.06.2017 - Janis Teunissen

On Thursday, June 29th, 2017, Janis Teunissen from the University Leuven will is going to speak at the RUB about "Modeling nanosecond pulsed discharges: current status and challenges". His talk will be in ID 04/653 at 2pm.

Interested people are welcome to join!

Janis Teunissen, Uni. Leuven

28.04.2017 - Dr. Andrew Fletcher

Dr. Andrew Fletcher from the Newcastle University, UK, stayed at the research group for Astronomy of Prof. Dettmar for four weeks. He started his visit on April 18th and left at May 15th, 2017. In this time he collaborated with the people from Bochum on magnetic fields.

A highlight of his stay was the seminar talk with the title "Magnetic field in the multi-phase interstellar medium" on May 4th, 2017.

Abstract: I will review what is known about the general properties of magnetic fields in the diffuse interstellar medium. New results will then be presented, addressing questions such as:
is the mean, large-scale, magnetic field preferentially connected to a particular phase of the ISM? what effect does the generation of the mean-field have on ISM structure? what are the space and time correlations of random fluctuations in the ISM? how are these correlation scales related to observables?

10.05.2017 - Prof. Peter Yoon

In April and May, Prof. Peter Yoon of the University of Maryland, USA, visits the research group of Prof. Schlickeiser within a DFG funded project.

During this time, he will give two seminar talks, the first one at Thursday, May 11th, 2017 at 10:15 in NB 7/67. The title of this talk is "On the Isotropization of Solar Wind Protons".
The second presentation will be at Wednesday,  May 24th, 2017 at 10:15 in NB 7/67 about "Turbulent Equilibria in Space Plasmas".

08.05.2017 - Prof. Dr. Mizuki Sakamoto

On Monday, May 15th, 2017, Prof. Dr. Mizuki Sakamoto from Tsukuba University, Japan, visited the research group of Pof. Czarnetzki. He had a talk in the seminar room NABF 05/694 at 15.00. The title was "Divertor simulation experiment and PWI study using linear devices in University of Tsukuba"
