Poster Prize at the 8th International Workshop on Plasma Spectroscopy in Oxford

The 8th International Workshop on Plasma Spectroscopy was held from the 23-26th of September, 2018 at the Worcester College in Oxford, UK. Volker Schulz- von der Gathen, Patrick Preissing and Katharina Grosse from EP2 contributed with 2 talks and 3 poster presentations. One of two poster prices were won by Patrick Pressing which was announced during the conference dinner. The excursion to Blenheim Palace was a highlight of the conference next to the excellent scientific programme.


Plathinium conference in Antibes

Several projects from the Coordinated Research Centers CRC 1316 and SFB-TR 87 presented their research at the 1st Plathinium Conference (September 16th until September 20th) in Antibes. This conference is a newly combined meeting of the former French vacuum congress, the French assembly on magnetron sputtering and thin films as well as the French conference on ion beam techniques. The PhD students Sascha Monje-Thiemann, Julian Held and Dennis Engels presented their work on low pressure magnetized plasmas in the poster session. Christian Hoppe gave an oral contribution on defects in SiOx coatings. Achim von Keudell presented a plenary lecture on atmospheric pressure plasma chemistry and contributed with a tutorial on fundamentals of plasmas to a workshop preceding the meeting. Achim von Keudell was also elected to become the chair of the 2nd Plathinium conference in 2021.


ALD conference in Seattle

The 19th Conference on Atomic Layer Deposition took place from 21st until 24th July in Seattle. Two groups from the RD Plasma joined the conference namely Prof. Devi from inorganic materials chemistry as well as researchers from theoretical electrical engineering. With six oral and numerous poster presentations, the conference was a great success for the members of the RD Plasma.

10th International Workshop on Microplasmas in Kyoto

This year, the 10th edition of the International Workshop on Microplasmas took place in Kyoto. The scope of the workshop are the generation/sources of microplasmas, modelling, and applications (material processing, biomedical material treatments, environmental devices etc.). Around 70 participants from all over the world joined the meeting. A group of nine people from Bochum, especially from the CRC 1316 joined the conference. Finally, two oral presentations and six poster presentations were given by them.

An oral presentation was held by Sebastian Dzikowski from project A6 from the CRC 1316 with the title "Initial ignition behavior of a micro cavity plasma array (MCPA)". Moreover, an invited talk was given by Dr. Volker Schulz-von der Gathen from the CRC with the title "Micro cavity plasma array devices: From first ignition to continuous operation".


ISPC 24 in Naples

Between June 11th and 14th, the 24th International Symposium on Plasma Chemistry took place in Naples, Italy. A group of seven peole from the CRC 1316 as well as from the SFB-TR 87 joined the meeting. An honour was given to Achim von Keudell, who had a plenary talk on High power impulse magnetron sputtering – extreme plasmas for extreme materials. Also, Julia Bandow from project B8 of the CRC1316 had an invited talk on Plasma meets biotechnology – coupling plasma and enzymatic reactions. Further, Marc Böke had a talk on Separated effects of plasma species and post- treatment on the properties of barrier layers on polymers and Patrick Preissing presented his work on NO production in the COST Reference Microplasma Jet and a dielectric barrier discharge measured by means of Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF).
