The institute consists of the Chair of Applied Electrodynamics and Plasma Technology AEPT (formerly Chair of Electrical Engineering and Plasma Technology) and the Research Group for Biomedical Plasma Technology BPT.
The team of Thomas Mussenbrock und Peter Awakowicz works in the research area technical plasma systems and plasma processes. In addition to the application of technical plasmas, the focus is also on the development of electrical and optical diagnostic methods as well as mathematical modeling and numerical simulation.
The team of Andrew R. Gibson works on the characterization of the unique chemical and physical properties of various plasma sources, with a focus on plasma chemistry. The team develops and uses a combination of numerical simulations and experimental measurements.
The institute is a member of the Research Department Plasmas with Complex Interactions as well as the Materials Research Department at Ruhr University Bochum.
The 20th Plasma Technology Conference (PT20) will take place in Bochum from March 27th to 29th, 2023. The PT20 is organized by the Chair for Applied Electrodynamics and Plasma Technology (AEPT) at the Ruhr University Bochum under the sponsorship of the German Society for Plasma Technology e.V. (DGPT). The venue is the ID building on the RUB campus in Bochum. Gebäude ID auf dem RUB-Campus in Bochum.
