Conference organization

Successful Frontiers conference in Bad Honnef

Between May 12th and May 16th, 2019, the 13th Frontiers in Low-Temperature in Plasma Diagnostics and 1st Frontiers in Low-Temperature Plasma Simulations was held in the Physikzentrum in Bad Honnef. The conference was organized by the Research Department Plasmas with Complex Interactions and chaired by Prof. Czarnetzki from the SFB 1316. In total, 103 participants joined the diagnostics and simulation meeting. Scientists from both collaborative research centers, SFB TR 87 and SFB 1316, attended the meeting and presented five poster and four oral contributions.


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.


High-resolution spectroscopic and electrical diagnostics of barrier discharges - Thomas Hoder -

Streamer mechanism is one of the main ionisation mechanisms in highpressure plasma jets, pulsing coronas or barrier discharges. In atmospheric air, it is an ultra-fast process which produces a light emission or current pulses with duration of only several units of nanoseconds. In such challenging case, an enhanced diagnostic method has to be applied. In this contribution, high-resolution sensitive spectroscopic and electrical methods will be presented which enable the determination of basic plasma parameters in mentioned fast ionising events. The presented methods will be applied to barrier discharges in contact with condensed matter - solid and liquid - and their use for further applied research will be critically discussed. It will take place on Wednesday, October 17th, 13:00 – 14:00, in our seminar room (NB 5/ 158, Experimentalphysik 2). Other interested SFB members, students, and external scientists are welcome to join as well. Please register by email to Alicia Gonzalez (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Project Meeting Kerkrade

Between July 8 and July 10, 2019, the annual retreat of the CRC 1316 took place in Kerkrade. Nearly 40 participants joined the event at the Abtei Hotel Rolduc during the three days. 

At the first day, a special PhD activity took place, followed by two days intensive scientific discussions with all participants.


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.
