Dynamic structures in atmospheric pressure plasmas and optical analysis

Organized by INP Greifswald
Greifswald, Germany, June 27 – 30, 2011

Supported by Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany (project RUS 10/005)

General information

The workshop brings together the research groups from Germany and Russia working on various applications of atmospheric and high-pressure plasmas. The scientists of both countries will get a brilliant opportunity to discuss the recent challenges, problems and solution methods in fundamental investigations and technological applications.

The aim of this meeting is to consolidate the efforts in investigations and development of technological plasmas including both the diagnostics and modelling aspects. Young scientists and early stage researches have been invited to the workshop for presentation of their results.

The workshops will be held in the INP Greifswald. The official workshop language is English.

COST Action MPO902 - 1st Working Group Meeting

8th-9th March 2010

The main objective of the Action is to develop new composite materials from inorganic nanotubes and polymers and to establish appropriate links and transfer of knowledge needed for application and commercialisation of this kind of composite media by European industry.

Nanotubes made of inorganic materials are an interesting alternative to carbon nanotubes, showing advantages such as e.g. easy synthetic access, good uniformity and solubility, and predefined electrical conductivity depending on the composition of the starting material. They are therefore very promising candidates as fillers for polymer composites with enhanced thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties. Target applications for this kind of composites are materials for heat management, electrostatic dissipaters, wear protection materials, photovoltaic elements, etc.

The Action will link together European scientists working on this rapidly emerging field to create a basis for a highly interdisciplinary research network focused on development and exploration of inorganic nanotube-polymer composites. The Action will generate a fundamental knowledge and create widespread links needed for application and commercialization of this kind of composite media by European industry.




3rd International Workshop on Microplasmas 2006

We would like to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Workshop on Microplasmas from Tuesday, May 9 to Thursday, May 11 2006, which will take place in the old university town of Greifswald. The workshop will start with a reception dinner on May 8.

General information

The subjects of this workshop are the inspiring scientific and arising technological opportunities of microplasmas and microdischarges. We will discuss the latest results of research and applications of plasmas with linear dimensions in the range from mm to µm and operating pressures up to and exceeding atmospheric pressure. The workshop is organized by the INP (Institute of Low Temperature Plasma Physics e.V.) in cooperation with the IfP (Institute of Physics) of the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-University Greifswald.


We wish to thank the following for their contribution to the success of this conference:
European Office of Aerospace Research and Development, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, United States Air Force Research Laboratory (

Next Workshop

It is accepted by the International Scientific Committee to hold the 4th International Workshop on Microplasmas in Tainan City, Taiwan, Republic of China.
Date : Probably Spring of 2008
