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. In addition, 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...
During the Master Class the topic of Plasmas and industry will be discussed
at a level of forefront research.
