Conference report

Three PhD student from experimental physics II department join Gordon Research Conference

This years Gordon Research Conference on "Fundamental Insights into Plasma Processing" was held at the Bryant University in Smithfield, Rhode Island from the 5th to the 10th of August. The additional Gordon Research Seminar for PhD students, Post-Docs and young scientists started at the 4th of August. The PhD students Sebastian Dzikowski, Katharina Grosse, and Theresa Urbanietz from experimental physics II, RUB, working in the SFB-1316 participated in both the seminar and the conference with poster presentations. Additionally, Theresa Urbanietz was selected to give a students talk at the Gordon Research Seminar. During the Gordon Research Conference, Professor Uwe Czarnetzki from the experimental physics V department gave a talk about challenges in diagnostics with the title "Plasma Diagnostics: What Can We Know? What Ought We Do? For What May We Hope?".

The atmosphere of this conference was very friendly and the discussions between students, post-docs and professors during the poster sessions were both fruitful and motivating. The students had the opportunity during each lunch to sit and eat with different experts (paper editors, scientists in academia and industry...) to discuss their career in a casual environment. The overall programm of the Gordon Research Seminar and the Gordon Research Conference was perfectly put together and the chances for students to discuss their work with advanced researchers in their field created a very unique atmosphere for which the Gordon Research Conferences are famous.


07. - 11.10.2018 I 22th International Plasma School

Our series of schools on low temperature plasma physics has been a great success in the last two decades. In 2018, the 22th International School on "Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Apllications" and its Master Class "Electronegative plasmas" will take place at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany. We are looking forward to it because, once again, we are putting together a very promising program, with support of many colleagues who are willing to give a talk at the School.

09. - 14.09.2018 I Photonik-Akademie 2018 from Bochum to Greifswald

Do you have the igniting idea for the plasma research of tomorrow? You are studying nature- or engineering sciences? Apply! You can expect excursions to renowned companies, meetings with company bosses, experiments, workshops, specialist presentations as well as a colourful accompanying program. The applicationdeadline is July 15th 2018. 


11. - 13.07.2018 I Project Area Meeting in Kerkrade

The aim of the meeting is the presentation of the status of the CRC1316 project. Our special guests this year are Luis Alves and Antonio Tejero from IST Lisboa. They will talk about "The LisbOn KInetics (LoKI) computational tool" on Thursday. In addition, the status of the CRC's subprojects will be finally adopted. This meeting is obligatory for all CRC members. If you would like to bring someone in addition, inform us till 01.06.2018.


04.07. - 07.07.2018 I RUB Japan Science Days

From July 4 - 7 2018, top researchers, presidents, vice presidents and executives from university management and administration from the University of Tokyo, Osaka University, the University of Tsukuba and RUB meet to promote the fruitful exchange among them. The RUB Japan Science Days will be each devoted to a guiding topic of high societal relevance that offers multi- and transdisciplinary approaches to teaching, research and transfer. This year - honoring a topic that is presently hotly debated in Japan and also in Germany - the Science Days are devoted to "Society 5.0 - Chances and Risks of Digital Transformation and the Responsibility of Universities".

Furthermore, a framework program from the RUB is allocated for the Japanese guests to learn more about science in Bochum and the Ruhr area in general. 


12.06.2018 I Crash Course Surface Science

In this course lectures are intended to guide you trough the "acronym jungle" encountered in Surface Science and catalyst characterization and to make you familiar with the basic concepts of heterogeneous catalysis and the application of heterogeneous catalysts in continuously operated chemical reactors. 

It will take place on Tuesday, June 12, in our seminar room (NBCF 04/679, Technische Chemie). You'll find it in between NB and NC on level 04 in the south close to physics.

6.6.2018 I Plasma Crash Course

This block course intends to provide a basic understanding of low temperature plasma physics and technology to the surface scientists of the SFB 1316. Other interested SFB members, students, and external scientists are welcome to join as well.
The workshop will be done online via Adobe Connect at no cost. Registration for the workshop is mandatory. The registration deadline is May 29th 2018. The workshop will only take place, if more than five people register. To register, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
