Organized by the INP Greifswald and the IfP, University of Greifswald
Greifswald, Germany, June 14 – 16 2006
With this 2nd
announcement, we would like to invite you again to attend the 1st
International Workshop on Infrared Plasma Spectroscopy (IPS2006) and to ask you to submit a presentation of your current research in the field of Infrared Plasma Spectroscopy. The workshop is organized by the INP Greifswald in cooperation with the Institute of Physics (IfP), University of Greifswald and will take place from Wednesday 14th
to Friday 16th
June, 2006, in the INP in the old university town of Greifswald, Germany.
This Workshop is the first conference which brings together physicists from different laboratories who are applying spectroscopic methods in the infrared spectral region for investigating gas discharges. This is an important and fruitful opportunity to meet and discuss with the leading scientists in this field. The scientific program covers all modern aspects of Infrared Plasma Spectroscopy connecting fundamental research with industrial applications. The main topics of the Workshop include all kinds of spectroscopic methods in the infrared region, like tuneable diode laser absorption spectroscopy, and their various applications for diagnostics of all kind of gas discharges. Two sessions of talks will be held each day before lunch. The afternoons are reserved for the industrial exhibition, the poster session and the conference tour. Due to the limited facilities of the Workshop site the number of participants will be limited to ca. 40…50, so please register early.
