»Atmospheric-pressure plasmas – processes and applications« Recent developments in the field of plasma technology

The workshop on »Atmospheric-pressure plasmas – processes and applications« on 5th and 6th March 2013 took place at the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST at Braunschweig, Germany.


Renowned experts from relevant players in industry and academia have presented recent application-oriented research and technology developments in the area of cold atmospheric pressure plasmas for the cost-efficient and environmentally friendly large area or area-selective surface modification or thin-film coating of various (even 3D) substrates.

»Approaches for modelling technical plasma discharges«

In the serie of the INPLAS ))) Talks on 10th September 2013 another workshop - issue »Plasmasimulation« -  took place at Fraunhofer IST in Braunschweig.


Plasma modeling is increasingly recognized as a tool to efficiently optimize plasma sources of various designs and operating under various conditions, and to accelerate the transfer of lab-scale processes into industrial production lines.


The topics covered on the workshop Were equally interesting for users and potential users of plasma modeling in industry and academia. The workshop organizers' hope to inspire fruitful discussions and new ideas for joint development activities for improved plasma sources and new cost-efficient plasma processes have been more than met.
