FOR 1123: International Workshop "Diagnostics of Microplasmas"

March 21st - 23rd, 2010
RUB Veranstaltungszentrum

Microplasmas are receiving much attention recently. The basic processes controlling these plasmas are not yet fully understood. One of the reasons is a lack of diagnostics - largely due to the inherent difficulties dealing with small dimensions and rapid phenomena.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together experts in diagnostics and diagnostic-near modeling of small scale atmospheric pressure microplasmas to discuss advances in this area. The number of participants is limited to about 60. Participation in this workshop is by invitation only.
The program calls for invited talks and limited oral and poster presentations. The schedule will provide ample opportunity for discussions in order to allow for a genuine workshop atmosphere.
The workshop is organized by the Research Unit Physics of Microplasmas FOR 1123 of the German Science Foundation (DFG) within the Research Department “Plasmas with Complex Interactions” of Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

Invited lecturers:

  • Ronny Brandenburg, Germany
  • Christoph Hollenstein, Switzerland
  • Ömer Ilday, Turkey
  • Mark Kushner, USA (to be confirmed)
  • Gerrit Kroesen, The Netherlands
  • Dragana Maric, Serbia

    Kick-off meeting Applied Competence Cluster

    Das ACC Plasma Technology fokussiert auf die Evaluierung und den Transfer erfolgversprechender Technologien und Methoden auf dem Gebiet der Plasmatechnik in industrierelevante Anwendungen. Das Know-how wird in neun Professuren und ihren Arbeitsgruppen im Center of Plasma Science and Technology und seiner Ausgründung PAC erarbeitet.
    Die Eröffnungsveranstaltung des ACC Plasma Technology findet gemeinsam mit dem ACC Terahertz am 22. Februar 2010 ab 9:00 im ICN 03/95 an der RUB statt.

    FOR 1048 PostGraduate School: MHD Dynamos in Laboratory and Astrophysical Plasmas

    Magnetic fields are known to play important roles in astrophysical systems on all scales and in all environments, from the star formation process and stellar flares, to compact objects and the heliosphere, and from large-scale magnetic fields in galaxies to clusters of galaxies. Key questions in astrophysics today are directly linked to magnetic fields such as the collimated outflows in jets, which are most likely responsible for the acceleation of the most energetic particles in the Universe. Given this omnipresence and the importance for the most energetic processes it is very surprising to see how little is known about the generation of the observed cosmic magnetic fields and their turbulence. Crucial in our understanding of the observed properties is the dynamo process, the most likely mechanism considered viable to generate and maintain the observed magnetic field properties. However, the detailed physics of this non-linear process is not well understood either. An understanding of "real" dynamos is meanwhile considered a fundamental problem in physics. Therefore, several laboratory experiments have been designed to study the process in more detail. This school tries to cover all these different aspects in a series of introductory lectures. Complementary first-hand information on special topics will be given by experts in the field. A general introduction to plasma physics will be followed by lectures on experiments and theory of MHD dynamos as well as the structure and turbulence of magnetic fields covering scales from laboratories to galaxies. The school is directed at PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in plasma- and astrophysics.
    The one-week school is part of the Research Unit FOR 1048 training activities and will be held at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, February 15 - 19, 2010.

    2. Internal Meeting FOR 1123

    Monday, December 14 till Tuesday December 15 the Research Group will meet for an internal meeting to check up the actual positions.

    WELTPP-12 2009

    The 12th Workshop on the Exploration of Low Temperature Plasma Physics
    Rolduc, Kerkrade, November 26-27, 2009
    This workshop is intented for active scientists working in the field of low temperature plasma physics. It is sponsored by the Bochum Research Training Group, the Queen's University Belfast and the Dutch 'onderzoekschool Centrum voor Plasmafysica en Stralongstechnologie' (CPS) of the Eindhoven University of Technology. It is part of the RTG 1051: non-equilibrium phenomena in low-temperature plasmas: diagnostics-modeling-application.
    The aim of this workshop is to create a forum for young low temperature plasma scientists, that is graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, to meet, learn from each other, exchange knowledge, present results and establish new contacts. The emphasis is on the presentation of the work of the people new in this field.
