The students are familiar with low-temperature plasma physics and have an up-to-date overview of the topic.
The “International Summer School on Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications” will give graduate MSc / PhD students world-wide a solid introduction and a concise overview of low-temperature plasma physics and serves as a forum providing coherent education in plasma science. The School has become a genuine part of the curricula of some participating universities, because it gives a comprehensive coverage of the main areas of interest for plasma science and technology: fundamentals of plasma physics, plasma sources, thermal and low-pressure plasmas, plasma kinetics, diagnostics, modelling and plasma-surface interactions.
- Fundamentals of gas discharge physics, similarity laws, types of plasmas
- Debye length, collision rates, ionization cross sections, mean free path lengths, magnetic confinement
- Plasma sources, RF discharges
- Thermal plasmas
- Plasma diagnostics
- Radiation, collisional-radiative models
- Electron kinetics
- Hydrodynamic models
- Kinetics in reactive plasmas
- Surface processes
- Dusty plasmas
The students should have attended several introductory lectures in the field of plasma technology and should have passed the corresponding exams.
Block seminar: The exact times will be announced in the organizational meeting.
