Our institute consists of two chairs under the direction of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Awa­ko­wicz, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tho­mas Mus­sen­brock together with one research group under the direction of Jun.- Prof. Dr. An­d­rew Gib­son, which build our large research team.

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.

Die Forschungsthemen des Lehrstuhls für Angewandte Elektrodynamik und Plasmatechnik von Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Mussenbrock liegen im Bereich der Niedertemperaturplasmen sowie der nanoelektronischen und nanoionischen Bauelemente. Das Team entwickelt analytische und numerische Methoden für die Modellierung und Simulation der aufgeführten Nichtgleichgewichts­systeme und wendet diese im Zusammenspiel mit Experimenten an.

The core expertise of the Biomedical Plasma Engineering group, 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 individual groups have specialized in different research areas of plasma technology, but work hand in hand on the research of diverse plasma processes and the development of a wide variety of plasma sources. Due to the close connection between experimental and theoretical research, we are able to obtain comprehensive analyses of plasma processes and to achieve an extraordinary efficiency in plasma research.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of plasma technology, our institute maintains cooperation with top-class national and international scientists and institutes, also from other scientific fields.

The institute is a member of the Re­se­arch De­part­ment Plas­mas with Com­plex In­ter­ac­tions.
