Our institute consists of two chairs under the direction of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Awa­ko­wicz, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tho­mas Mus­sen­brock together with one junior professorship under the direction of Jun.- Prof. Dr. An­d­rew Gib­son.

The team of the Chair of Electrical Engineering and Plasma Technology of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Awakowicz is engaged not only in teaching in the field of fundamentals of electrical engineering and plasma technology, but also in particular in the experimental implementation and experimental diagnostics of various technical plasma processes ranging from low-pressure applications to atmospheric pressure plasmas, plasmas in liquids or high-pressure applications.

The research topics of the Chair of Applied Electrodynamics and Plasma Technology of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Mussenbrock are in the area of low-temperature plasmas as well as nanoelectronic devices. The team develops analytical and numerical methods for modeling and simulation applies them in close collaboration with experimentalists.

The core expertise of the Junior Professorship for Biomedical Plasma Technology, led by Jun.-Prof. Dr. Andrew Gibson, is characterizing the unique chemical and physical properties of diverse plasma sources, with an emphasis on plasma chemistry, using a combination of numerical simulations and experimental measurements.

The institute is member of the Re­se­arch De­part­ment Plas­mas with Com­plex In­ter­ac­tions as well as the Materials Research Department of the Ruhr University Bochum.
