The LAPD17 Symposium is the continuation of a biennial series that began at Kyushu University in 1983. It brings together physicists and chemists in diverse areas of laser-based plasma diagnostics including the physics of nuclear fusion, laser physics and low-temperature plasma chemistry and physics. The symposium aims to promote cross-vertilization of these fields via fruitful discussion, and covers all diagnostics using electromagnetic waves (lasers and microwaves) applied to fusion plasmas, industrial process plasmas, environmental plasmas, plasmas for medical applications, atmospheric plasmas, plasmas in liquids and other plasma applications. Topics on hardware developments related to laser-aided plasma diagnostics are also welcome.

Plasma diagnostics

09.06.2015 - 11TH FRONTIERS IN LOW TEMPERATURE PLASMA DIAGNOSTICS

The 11th biennial Frontiers in Low Temperature Plasma Diagnostics (FLTPD) workshop was being organised by the PIIM laboratory (Aix-Marseille University and the CNRS). It was held on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Porquerolles, approximately 15 min by boat from the mainland. It took place from Sunday 24th to Thursday 28th May, 2015 at the IGESA conference centre.
Marcel Fiebrandt and Moritz Oberberg (both AEPT), Dr. Volker Schulz-von der Gathen (EP2) as well as Prof. Dr. Uwe Czarnetzki, Dr. Emile Carbone, Dr. Tsanko Tsankov, and Xi-Ming Zhu (all EP5) participated.

Microplasma workshop

15.05.2015 - 8TH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON MICROPLASMAS

The 8th International Workshop on Microplasmas (IWM 2015) was held from May 11-15, 2015 at Seton Hall University, Seton Hall Law School campus, located in Newark, New Jersey. The IWM is hosted by the Department of Physics of the College of Arts & Sciences and the Gibbons Institute, Science & Technology Law of Seton Hall University. The German-French collaboration between GREMI (Orléans) and RUB (Bochum) continues and was being strengthened overseas as well as you can see on the photo: PhD students Judith Golda from RUB (right) together with Valentin Felix from GREMI (left).
Prof. Dr. Remi Dussart (GREMI) gave an invited talk about the common resarch topic "Performances
and instabilities of silicon based microdischarges".

Metallurgical Coatings

23.04.2015 - INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON METALLURGICAL COATINGS AND THIN FILMS (ICMCTF)

The International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF) is internationally recognized as the premier international conference focused on thin-film deposition, characterization, and advanced surface engineering. It brings together scientists, engineers, and technologists from academia, government laboratories, and industry, thereby merging cutting-edge research with real-world applications. The conference consistently draws more than 700 attendees each year within 37 oral technical sessions and a well-attended poster session.
It took part in San Diego from April 20th-24th, 2015. Postdoc Dr. Ante Hecimovic (Experimental Physics II) gave a presentation entitled "Plasma oscillations and ion transport in DC and HiPIMS magnetron discharges". He was also a session chair on a topical symposia "Plasma diagnostic and modelling". At the end, he has organised a round table disccusion on "Plasma diagnostic and modelling techniques for improved understanding of deposition process".
Prof. Dr. Peter Awakowicz and his PhD student Stefan Ries participated at ICMCTF as well.

Aerodynamic flow

08.04.2015 - ÉCOLE DE PHYSIQUE DES HOUCHES: FUNDAMENTALS OF AERODYNAMIC FLOW AND COMBUSTION CONTROL BY PLAMAS

Dr. Volker Schulz-von der Gathen (EP2, RUB) gives a talk about "Dynamics of the discharge evolution of micro discharge arrays" at the École de Physique des Houches in France (from April 12, 2015 to April 17, 2015).
This conference is the fifth of a cycle of conferences dedicated to the fundamental issues in the scientific disciplines relevant to aeronautics and space development. The previous editions of this workshop were held in Villa Monastero, Italy (2007), Les Houches (2009 & 2011) and Aussois (2013). The program will feature twenty invited lectures. Presentations will again address fundamental issues, experimental challenges, measurement methods and advanced numerical simulation.
The conference is managed by a team from the Paris region, with Svetlana Starikovskaia (Chairperson, Laboratoire de Physique des Plasmas, Ecole Polytechnique), Christophe Laux (vice-Chair, Ecole Centrale de Paris), Jean-Pierre Taran (local organisation, Onera) and a Steering Committee composed of leading scientists in the field.
The program of invited lectures can be found here.
