Award

Prof. Uwe Czarnetzki awarded International Fellow of the Japan Society of Applied Physics

Prof. Uwe Czarnetzki from project A1/A2 of the CRC 1316 was awarded international fellow of the Japan Society of Applied Physics. The award ceremony will be held September 18th, 2019 during the Japan Society of Applied Physics autumn meeting. During the ceremony, the honored fellows are invited to present their scientific contribution. The status of international fellows of the Japan Society of Applied Physics is an honor awarded to scientists who support the progress of the Japan Society of Applied Physics in recognition of their achievements. Congratulations!

Poster Prize

Poster Prize for Christoph Stewig (A3) at the Conference for Plasma Technology 19 in Cottbus

Christoph Stewig was awarded with one of the three poster prizes at the bi-annual conference on plasma technology in Cottbus. 

Honour

Masao Horiba Prize for Dr. Tsankov

Masao Horiba PrizeThe Masao Horiba Prize has been awarded annually for 15 years to scientists and technical experts to honor world-leading ideas and innovations in diagnostic methods. The specific topic is selected each year from the areas promoted/represented by the HORIBA Group. The topic of this year's award was "Advanced analytical measurement technologies for the semiconductor manufacturing process". Semiconductor technologies form the foundation of today's society. In order to drive forward the constant development, many companies in the industry need new innovations - not only in the production of materials but also in the control and observation of production processes, e. g. by new diagnostic methods.

A jury of established scientists and representatives of the HORIBA Group selected the prize winners. Among them Dr. Tsanko Vaskov Tsankov from the Chair of Plasma and Atomic Physics, Faculty of Physics and Astronomy was especially distinguished. Dr. Tsankov has developed a plasma diagnostic method that allows the non-invasive determination of plasma parameters. The prize will be awarded at a ceremony in October at Kyoto University. Dr. Tsankov has received an award from the HORIBA Group for his work "Non-invasive plasma characterization using the ion velocity distribution function".

Awards

IS Plasma Price for Prof. Dr. Uwe Czarnetzki

At the International Plasma Symposium (ISPlasma) at the Meijo University in Nagoya / Japan, this year's ISPlasma Prize was awarded to Prof. U. Czarnetzki

ISPlasma / IC-PLANTS is an international symposium that brings together some 1,000 of the world's leading scientists and engineers in the Nagoya area of ​​Japan to discuss recent advances in advanced plasma research and applications for the processing and production of nitrides and nanomaterials as new systems for to discuss the technology transfer. The symposium address topics such as global warming, resources and energy issues that can be greatly enhanced by modern plasma research and its application technologies. Biosensor technologies are also highlighted in this symposium for their increasing importance in health, food and the environment.
