The PSE conference 2022 was held again in Erfurt in person. The CRC 1316 was represented by Achim von Keudell (projects A3 and B7). He held a plenary talk about diagnostic challenges in HiPIMS. Simon Kreuznacht (Carbon2Chem) gave a talk in the trend workshop 'plasma in gas conversion'. This conference with 550 attendees focus on applications of plasma technology for material processing and modification.
From August 21 to August 25, the 17th International Symposium on High Pressure Low Temperature Plasma Chemistry (HAKONE XVII ) was held in the south of the Netherlands in the former Abbey Rolduc. The symposium is devoted to the fundamentals and applications of non-thermal plasmas and their chemistry at elevated pressures.. Judith Golda from the CRC 1316 gave an invited talk on "Cold Atmospheric Pressure Plasmas for Plasma Catalytic Applications: Characteristics, Constraints and Challenges".
Gordon research conference
From July 23rd to July 29th the Gordon Research Conference and Seminar on Plasma Processing and Science was held in Andover, New Hampshire. The conference focused on plasmas and their interactions with matter while the seminar focused on investigating multiphase and multiscale plasma-material interactions. Judith Golda from the CRC 1316 had a talk on "State enhanced actinometry in atmospheric pressure discharges". Furthermore, she organised the so-called "Power Hour" at the GRC - an event to raise awareness of the challenges in the field of minorities in plasma physics.
GREMI visit of Judith Golda, Laura Chauvet and Daniel Henze
From 18 July to 29 July, Jun.-Prof. Judith Golda, Dr. Laura Chauvet and Daniel Henze from the CRC 1316 were guests in the laboratory of Prof. Claire Douat at the GREMI in Orléans. In a joint measurement campaign, two different atmospheric pressure plasma jets were being tested. They measured the production of CO at different operating conditions with a gas analyser. This trip was funded by the DAAD as part of a PROCOPE project to improve cooperation between RUB and GREMI.
Poster Prize for Dr. Laura Chauvet
Dr. Laura Chauvet received the poster award for the best poster for her contribution "mass spectrometry measurements of plasma catalysis conversion of n-butane at atmospheric pressure" at the Plasma Catalysis Meeting in Liverpool, UK.
