GRC 2014 Jan Ante Jörg Achim

The Gordon Research Conference "Plasma Processing Science: Many Scales, Many Applications, One Discipline" was held from July 27 - August 1, 2014 at Bryant University in Smithfield, RI (USA). Prof. Achim Von Keudell was Vice Chair, Postdoc Dr. Ante Hecimovic gave a talk about "Spokes, Instabilities and Self Organisation Phenomena in HiPIMS Discharges" and Jun.-Prof. Jan Benedikt about "Plasma-Cell Interaction: Can We Ever Understand and Control It?" .
The Plasma Processing Science Gordon Research Conference was held in conjunction with the Plasma Processing Science Gordon Research Seminar.
Plasma processing science, due to its intrinsic nonequilibrium nature, has been at the heart of many key enabling technologies and provided breakthrough solutions in areas of energy, human health, and environmental sustainability. The 2014 Gordon Research Conference on Plasma Processing Science featured a comprehensive program that highlights the most cutting edge scientific advances in plasma science and technology. It emphasized the common thread underlying all these applications that holds the promise to provide the knowledge base required to address future technological grand challenges. Fundamental science sessions focused on plasma physics and chemistry and their interaction on solid and liquid surfaces and for a wide range of applications, ranging from medicine, materials synthesis to energy production and storage. The conference brought together leaders in the field with junior investigators and graduate students. The special format of the Gordon Conferences, with programmed discussion sessions and ample time for informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provided for a fertile atmosphere of brainstorming and creative thinking among the attendees.


21.07.2014 - XXII ESCAMPIG

Prof. Dr. Achim von Keudell, Dr. Ante Hecimovic and PhD student Simon Große-Kreul went to the XXII Europhysics Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics of Ionized Gases (ESCAMPIG) which was held in Greifswald, Germany, July 15-19, 2014.
The ESCAMPIG is an international biennial conference of the EPS (European Physical Society). The conference topics comprise basic and applied plasma research ranging from atomic and molecular processes in plasmas and plasmasurface interaction to self-organization in plasmas and to the new research lines with low and high pressure plasma sources.
The XXII ESCAMPIG is organized jointly by the Institute of Physics of the University of Greifswald (IfP), the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP Greifswald) and the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP), Greifswald branch.

Plasma medicine


RUB Nara 2014

The ICPM is a full-week conference held from the 18th to the 23rd of May, 2014, in Nara, Japan. The field of "plasma medicine" is growing rapidly and this conference provides an ideal venue for the exchange of new ideas and information and support the initiation or further development of international collaborations among researchers in this multidisciplinary field. Multidisciplinary is also team of researchers coming from Ruhr-University Bochum, which contains microbiologist (Prof. Julia Bandow with invited oral presentation), electrical engineer (Dr. Jan-Wilm Lackman with contributed oral presentation) and two physicists (Simon Schneider, contributed oral presentation, travel supported by the RUB Research School; and Prof. Jan Benedikt, poster presentation). They are presenting the results of a DFG funded project package "Plasma-Microbe Interaction during Plasma-based Surface Decontamination" (Plasmadecon, PAK728 proposal-package).

Plasma applications


IMEPS Mussenbrock Czarnetzki

The International Middle East Plasma Science (IMEPS) conference was held in Belek-Antalya, Turkey from April 23th-25th, 2014 in the field of low temperature plasma covering a wide range of basic and applied plasma science.
