Plasma Chemistry


The European Training School on "Chemistry initiated by electrical discharges with liquids" took place at Jožef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in the period February 2nd-6th, 2014. It was organized with the support of EU COST Action TD1208 "Electrical discharges with liquids for future applications". The school's main goal was to provide lectures on interdisciplinary physics-chemistry topics, which are relevant for the community of mainly plasma physicists dealing with plasmas inside the liquids or in contact with liquids (electrochemistry, photochemistry, ionic liquids with plasmas, chemical probes for plasma-induced radicals). Additionally, the state-of-the-art in the field of plasmas with liquids (interactions, diagnostics, applications) and plasma-initiated water chemistry have been provided. 45 mainly PhD-candidates working in this field in the laboratories involved in this COST Action participated at the school. The participants originated from 15 European countries and from Turkey. The lectures have been accompanied by a poster session, where the participants have presented their current work, by the tour through the laboratories of the Jožef Stefan Institute, and by many discussions with the lecturers. The training school enabled the participants to get overview of state-of-the-art level of knowledge and to establish new connections with other researchers working in this field. Moreover, the presentation slides will be available to all Cost Action members and four talks have been recorded and will be provided to the public as open access video lectures, promoting this topic and this COST Action in general.
