Conference

International Workshop on Microplasmas in Kyoto 5/2019

Several projects of the SFB 1316 presented their reseach at the International Workshop on Microplasmas in Kyoto in May 2019 as two oral and six poster presentations. 

 
MERCATOR FELLOWS

New Mercator fellow - Prof. Dr. Satoshi Hamaguchi, University of Osaka

Prof. Satoshi Hamaguchis research focus on plasma-material interactions in general, including their industrial applications. The aim of research is to understand fundamental mechanics of plasma-material interactions under various conditions. To achieve this, we combine plasma/beam experiments with numerical simulation/modeling. More specifically our current research topics include 1) etching, deposition, and surface modification processes for micro/nano electronics device manufacturing, 2) surface modification and functionalization of biomaterials by plasmas, 3) processing of water and biological systems by atmospheric-pressure plasmas mainly for applications in plasma medicine and plasma agriculture, and 4) dynamics and chemical reactions in plasmas under various conditions, including atmospheric-pressure plasmas.

Prof. Hamaguchi is also coordinator of the JSPS core-to-core program "Establishment of the Center for Collaborative Research in Data-Driven Plasma Science " that connects Osaka university with Ruhr University Bochum, and the universities in Bologna, Aix-Marseille, and York. In the framework of this program the sending side covers international airfare and the receiving side covers maintenance and the domestic travel costs. The hosting side covers the cost of holding the seminars.

MEETING

Project Meeting at the Beckmanns Hof

The spring project meeting of the SFB 1316 took place at the Beckmanns Hof between the 25.03.- 27.03.2019. The first day was devoted to a workshop about Plasma Modeling and Simulation. The project meeting itself covered all projects and general items regarding the scientific progress of the consortium.

Meeting

Project Meeting at the Reisenburg Ulm

The fall project meeting of the SFB 1316 took place at the Reisenburg in Ulm between the 3.12.-5.12.2018. The first day was devoted to a crash course on electrochemistry with experimental and theoretical aspects. The project meeting itself covered all projects and general items regarding the scientific progress of the consortium.

Conference participation

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.
