Project Meeting at the Reisenburg Ulm

The fall project meeting of the SFB 1316 took place at the Reisenburg in Ulm between the 3.12.-5.12.2018. The first day was devoted to a crash course on electrochemistry with experimental and theoretical aspects. The project meeting itself covered all projects and general items regarding the scientific progress of the consortium.


High-resolution spectroscopic and electrical diagnostics of barrier discharges - Thomas Hoder -

Streamer mechanism is one of the main ionisation mechanisms in highpressure plasma jets, pulsing coronas or barrier discharges. In atmospheric air, it is an ultra-fast process which produces a light emission or current pulses with duration of only several units of nanoseconds. In such challenging case, an enhanced diagnostic method has to be applied. In this contribution, high-resolution sensitive spectroscopic and electrical methods will be presented which enable the determination of basic plasma parameters in mentioned fast ionising events. The presented methods will be applied to barrier discharges in contact with condensed matter - solid and liquid - and their use for further applied research will be critically discussed. It will take place on Wednesday, October 17th, 13:00 – 14:00, in our seminar room (NB 5/ 158, Experimentalphysik 2). Other interested SFB members, students, and external scientists are welcome to join as well. Please register by email to Alicia Gonzalez (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Project Meeting Kerkrade

Between July 8 and July 10, 2019, the annual retreat of the CRC 1316 took place in Kerkrade. Nearly 40 participants joined the event at the Abtei Hotel Rolduc during the three days. 

At the first day, a special PhD activity took place, followed by two days intensive scientific discussions with all participants.


07. - 11.10.2018 I 22th International Plasma School

Our series of schools on low temperature plasma physics has been a great success in the last two decades. In 2018, the 22th International School on "Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Apllications" and its Master Class "Electronegative plasmas" will take place at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany. We are looking forward to it because, once again, we are putting together a very promising program, with support of many colleagues who are willing to give a talk at the School.
