01.07.2013 - 40TH EUROPEAN PHYSICAL SOCIETY CONFERENCE ON PLASMA PHYSICS

The 40th EPS Conference on Plasma Physics takes place in Helsinki, Finland, from July 1st—5th 2013. This conference continues the series of European Physical Society (EPS) conferences on Plasma Physics, encompassing the fields of fusion research, magnetic confinement fusion, beam plasmas, laser-plasma interaction and inertial confinement fusion, dusty and low temperature plasmas, as well as space and astrophysical plasmas and basic plasmas. Ruhr-University Bochum is represented by Jun.-Prof. Dr. Jan Benedikt, presenting the progress in the research of plasma-surface interaction of atmospheric-pressure plasmas (results of the Research Unit FOR 1123 “Physics of Microplasmas”), and PhD student Sascha Ridder, who is presenting work with the title “FlareLab: Short time-scale diagnostics for rapidly moving magnetic flux Tubes.“

04.06.2013 - EMRS STRASSBOURG 2013

The Research Department Plasmas with Complex Interactions was represented in the E-MRS 2013 Spring meeting in Strasbourg (May 27-31, 2013) by Dr. Carles Corbella (Ion induced oxidation of aluminium during reactive magnetron sputtering) and Dr. Teresa de los Arcos (Target implantation and redeposition processes during HPPMS of aluminium). Both contributions were presented within the “protective Coatings and Thin Films’13” Symposium. The contribution of Dr. de los Arcos was presented in a special HiPIMS session supported by the COST Action MP 0804.

03.06.2013 - 7TH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON MICROPLASMAS 2013

The 7th International Workshop on Microplasmas took place from from Monday, May 20th to Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 in the Fragrant Hill Hotel near Bejing, China. This workshop was the seventh in a series that started in Japan in 2003 and has since alternated between venues in Asia, the USA and Europe.
The intent of the workshop is to bring together researchers from around the world to report on recent progress in understanding and in controlling the properties of plasmas generated in confined geometries.
The Research Department "Plasmas with Complex Interactions" and thus the Research Unit "Physics of Microplasmas" FOR1123 was represented by Jan Benedikt, Marc Böke, Denis Eremin, Dirk Luggenhölscher, Daniel Schröder, Achim von Keudell, and Jörg Winter.

08.05.2013- INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON METALLURGICAL COATINGS AND THIN FILMS (ICMCTF) 2013

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 32 oral technical sessions and a well-attended poster session.
2013, the conference took place from April 29 - May 3, 2013. Dr. Ante Hecimovic represented the Research Department "Plasmas with Complex Interactions" and gave an oral presentation entitled “The characteristic shape of emission profiles of plasma spokes in HiPIMS: the role of secondary electrons”. The presentation focused on the latest findings related to the plasma inhomogeneities observed in high power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS/HPPMS) discharge. Based on the experimental data and modelling of the discharge a model explaining the physical mechanism behind the plasma inhomogeneities has been presented.
