13.11.2018 - International School on Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications

The traditional summer school on low temperature plasma physics will go on in Octobre next year. The summer school takes place in Physikzentrum in Bad Honnef and is from Octobre 5th, 2018 until Octobre 10th, 2019. After the school, the master class will be from Octobre 10th, 2019 until Octobre 12th, 2019.

Participants are welcomed to sign in for registration until June 15th, 2019. Due to limitation in the number of rooms at the Physikzentrum, the attendance is limited.

PT19 in June 2019 in Cottbus

Between 17. 06. and 19. 06. 2019 the traditional plasma technology conference will take place in the premises of BTU in Cottbus.
The conference is organised by project managers in the SFB-TR 87, Prof. Dr. -Ing. Thomas Mussenbrock and Dr. -Ing. Jan Trieschmann from BTU in Cottbus.


13th Frontiers in Low-Temperature Plasma Diagnostics & 1st Frontiers in Low-Temperature Plasma

The 13th FLTPD workshop on 12th-15th May 2019 is an European event which brings together scientists working on low-temperature plasmas to present their recent results, focusing on original diagnostic techniques. The workshop will take place in the physics center of the German Physical Society in Bad Honnef and is limited to approximately 100 participants from academic, research and industrial institutions.

The program consists of expert presentations from around 10 invited speakers, topical talks selected by the International Scientific Committee from submitted abstracts, and poster contributions. As a rule, all participants will stay at the conference site and are expected to present a contribution.

It is an important and fruitful opportunity for young plasma scientists to share and discuss the latest developments in plasma diagnostics with the experts in the field.

The Conference is organized by Prof. Uwe Czarnetzki from the RUB and other European partners.

09.06.2017 - IWM 2017

The IWM 2017 was in the Riessersee Hotel in Garmisch-Partenkirchen from June 6-9, 2017. The workshop with familiar atmosphere was a great success for participants as well as for the organization team. Great discussion around the individual sessions and contributions made the four days workshop special. Also, the social program with a hiking tour and a visit of castel Linderhof contributed to the overall success of the workshop.

Within the workshop was the final symposium of the Marie Curie - Initial Training Network - Reactive Atmospheric Plasma Processing (

The next IWM 10 will take place in Kyoto from May 21st until May 24th, 2019.



15.05.2017 - Radiohalos of spiral galaxies - the impact of CHANG-ES in Bochum

Between June 6th and 10 th, 2017 the meeting concerning Radiohalos of spiral galaxies - the impact of CHANG-ES takes place in Bochum. The research group of Prof. Dettmar is coordinating group. The meeting is distributed over four days, where scientists from the CHANG-ES group as well as guests will come together. 

The Galaxy survey “Continuum HAlos in Nearby Galaxies – an Evla Survey (CHANG-ES)“ was observed at the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA radio telescope), New Mexico, USA. It contains a galaxy sample of significant size over a variety of angular spatial scales, which will help to address fundamental questions regarding radio halos and magnetic fields in spiral galaxies. The galaxies were observed at the two low frequencies, 1.5 GHz (20 cm wavelength) and 6 GHz (6 cm wavelength). CHANG-ES can also exploit the wide bandwidths that are provided by the EVLA. These wide bandwidths permit enormous improvements in continuum sensitivity. In addition, the wide bands provide a wealth of spectral information that will be unique to this survey. Moreover, CHANG-ES is the first survey of edge-on galaxies for which all polarization products will be obtained, providing important information on halo magnetic fields (Irwin et al. 2012).
