First (V)UV-double-monochromator calibration measurements at AG Benedikt in Kiel

To achieve a relative intensity calibration of a (V)UV-monochromator, the use of the double monochromator method is common. Two monochromators work in tandem and the difference in the spectrum from a stable light source of the first monochromator through the second monochromator is utilized to obtain a relative intensity calibration. From July 8th until July 12th, Beatrix Biskup from project B2 of the SFB-TR 87, stayed at the university in Kiel to achieved the monochromator calibration.

The monochromator from Bochum was transported beforehand to the AG Benedikt at CAU (Christian-Albrechts-University) in Kiel. The technical staff made all the preparations necessary for the monochromators from Bochum and Kiel to work together in tandem. Together with Dr. Judith Golda and Prof. Dr. Jan Benedikt in Kiel, Beatrix Biskup did the first test measurements, which could be successfully accomplished. A further cooperation with the research group will be executed in future.

Lab visit

Visit to the GREMI (Université d‘Orléans, France)

Sylvain Iseni, Volker Schulz-von der Gathen and Simon Kreuznacht laser safe at the experiment

From 18. to 28.02.2019 Simon Kreuznacht and Dr. Volker Schulz-von der Gathen visited Dr. Sylvain Iseni within the long term cooperation with the group of Remi Dussart at the GREMI – a CNRS instute located at the University of Orléans. During that stay they prepared a laser diagnostic measurment of the gas temperature very close to the surface of a DC driven micro-cavity discharge array.





09.10.2017 - Carles Corbella visiting Uppsala

Between 14th and 18th August, Dr. Carles Corbella (Experimentalphysik II, RUB) and Dr. Sabine Portal (Angewandte Festkörperphysik, RUB) visited Dr. Asim Aijaz and Dr. Tomas Kubart at the Ångström Laboratory of the Uppsala University, Sweden. The tasks, which were performed within the framework of the special research unit SFB-TR87, consisted in studying the deposition of diamond-like carbon films by means of high-power impulse magnetron sputtering.

St. Gallen

24.05.2017 - Carles Corbella in St. Gallen

Carles Corbella (EP2) performed a short stay (15.-19.05.17) at the EMPA in St. Gallen, Switzerland, where he investigated the deposition of barrier coatings on polymers using large plasma chambers. The visit was part of the activities of the SFB-TR 87. In front of a roll-to-roll coater, from left to right: Ezgi, Dirk, Barbara, and Carles.
