The research at AEPT and BPT is divided into four research areas, which have a large overlap in content due to the interdisciplinary nature of plasma technology.

  • Materials Processing and Environmental Applications
  • Technological High-frequency Plasmas
  • Modeling and Simulation
  • Biomedical Applications

The research is supported to a significant extent by public funding sources. These are

  • the German Research Foundation (DFG)
  • Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
  • the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi)
  • the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalisation and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MWIDE.NRW)
