Course on Low Temperature Plasma Physics and Application with Masterclass

Mo, 09.09.2002 08:30  –   Tu, 17.09.2002 12:00
Prof. Dr. J. Winter, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
Physikzentrum Bad Honnef
Hauptstr. 5, 53604 Bad Honnef, Germany

Scope of the Course and Master Class
The level of the course is aimed at:
Ph.D.-students in first year
Diploma- and M.-Sc.-students in last year
The aim of the course is to make the students become acquainted with the up-to-date status of the
field of low temperature plasma physics. It is assumed that the students have followed introductory
physics courses in their home university. However the basic principles will be summarized at the
beginning of the course. The course offers a broadening of knowledge in plasma physics and in the
interaction of plasmas with surfaces including a description of advanced diagnostics. Also the
students will be able to interact with the teachers of the course and they will meet fellow-students
from other universities in Europe during the Course and the Master Class. During the course a
special session will be devoted to presentations of the students to encourage interaction. Participants
are invited to bring with them presentation material in form of posters.
All lectures and discussions are in English.
Well known experts in the field will present lectures in the following areas:

• fundamentals of plasma physics,
• plasma sources,
• thermal and low pressure plasmas,
• atomic processes,
• electron kinetics,
• diagnostics and plasma spectroscopy,
• modelling,
• plasma-surface interactions,
• etc...
