Plasma Chemistry

24.08.2017 - ISPC 23 in Montreal

The 23rd International Symposium on Plasma Chemistry was held in MontrĂ©al, Canada, from July 30th to August 4th, 2017. This year around 430 scientists from all over the world attended the conference which is held every two years at different places. The next conference is planned for 2019 in Neapel, Italy.

Prof. Achim von Keudell and Prof. Uwe Czarnetzi joined this international event. Prof. Czarnetzki had a plenary talk about "Helium ns-Pulsed Atmospheric Pressure Discharges and the Key Role of Rydberg Molecules".

30.06.2017 - EXB Plasmas for Space and Industrial Applications

From June 21st until 23rd, 2017 the annual meeting EXB Plasmas for Space and Industrial Applications took place in Touluse, France. The focus was on the transport of charged particles within magnetic fields. The knowledge, optics, diagnostics, theory, and simulations were discussed within the presentations.

Prof. Achim von Keudell from the Research Department Plasmas with Complex Interactions joined this event of about 40 scientists.


27.06.2017 - HIPIMS conference in Braunschweig

On June 13th and 14th, 2017, the annual HIPIMS conference took place in Braunschweig. Since eight years, the two-day conference offers scientists as well as industrial operators to discuss physcial questions of pulsed high power impulse magnetron discharges. The place of conference changes every year between the Sheffield Hallam University and the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films.

Julian Held, Vincent Layes, Wolfgang Breilmann from the RUB were joining this conferene contributing one oral presentation and one poster.

Plasma Diagnostics


The 2nd European conference on plasma diagnostics was located this year in Bordeaux. The conference is an biennial event. Scientists from low temperature and industrial plasmas, inertial fusion, magnetic confinement fusion, beam plasmas,  as well as astrophysical scientists 

It took place from April 18th until 21th, 2017. Prof. von Keudell gave an invited overview lecture with the title "Physics and Diagnostics of Non-equilibrium Atmospheric Pressure Plasmas".
