Guest Experimental Physics II - Prof. von Keudell

Lab visit

Dr. habil. Sedina Tsikata visits plasma labs in Bochum

Within the frame of the physics collquium at Ruhr University in Bochum, Dr. habil. Sedina Tsikata from CNRS Orléans, France was invited to present her reserach topic. Her presentation had the title "With plasmas into space - physics of Hall thrusters". The visit was also used to discuss recent research topics with the groups of Prof. A. von Keudell and Prof. U. Czarnetzki.


26.04.2017 - Roeland Schelfhout visits research group applied plasma physics

Being part of the Cod-to-Doc program in the SFB-TR 87, Vincent Layes from the research group applied plasma physics visited the research group of Prof. Depla from the Ghent University in September 2015. Now the PhD student from Ghent University, Roeland Schelfhout, came to work together with Vincent Layes at the RUB from June 19th, until June 30th, 2017. He had a seminar talk about "The reactive sputtering process from a target point of view" on June 29th, 2017.

The scientific goal of both PhD canditates for this time is "Thorough XPS investigation of the poisoning evolution along the racetrack for an aluminum target, sputtered in an argon/oxygen atmosphere in both standard DC sputtering as well as in HiPIMS."


20.03.2017 - Dr. Molina on March 29th

Dr. Ricardo Molina from the Institute of Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (IQAC-CSIC) will give the seminar “Plasma polymerization in contact with liquids” on Wednesday, March, 29th, in Bochum. This lecture explores some routes to synthesize polymers in liquid environment by means of dielectric barrier discharges (DBD). The properties of the treated surfaces, e.g. surface energy, are addressed as well.

Since 2009, Dr. Molina works as Tenured Scientist at IQAC-CSIC in Barcelona, Spain. Being an expert in remote plasma treatments and DBD applications, his work is focused on plasma treatment of polymeric materials, plasma sterilization, plasma in liquids (elimination of contaminants in wastewater and polymerization) and plasma in agriculture (plasma activated water, seed germination, etc).

The seminar will take place on 29.03.17 at 10.00 in the lecture room ID 03/445 in the RUB. Please confirm attendance by sending an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
