Teaching - Professorships

Through joint professorships at the University of Greifswald and Rostock, the Leibniz Institute of Plasma Science and Technology contributes significantly to the continuous scientific exchange in the field of low temperature plasmas. Thus, the special research focus on plasma physics not only enriches university teaching and improves the possibilities for attracting suitable young scientists, but also results in synergy effects in the field of research.  The professors of INP are internationally recognized in the field of low temperature plasmas and represent plasma physics in its entire breadth also in teaching. Below you will find current information about regular teaching events in the field of plasma.

University of Rostock

The Chair of High Voltage and High Current Engineering at the Faculty of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Rostock, including two laboratories, is operated in cooperation between the University of Rostock and INP Greifswald. Teaching activities in the Master's program include fundamentals of high voltage and high current engineering as well as specializations in switchgear and circuit breaker technology and high voltage isolation. Current research focuses include experimental analysis and modeling of switching arcs in high-, medium- and low-voltage switches and arresters, including the investigation of vacuum arcs, the investigation of insulating materials and electrical equipment with respect to strength and aging behavior, especially by means of partial discharge diagnostics, and the investigation of the long-term stability of electrical contacts and connections. The research activities are integrated into the research focus "Welding and Switching" at INP and take place in laboratories in Rostock (high current & high voltage laboratory) as well as at INP (Arc Research Laboratory), which are assigned to the department "Plasma Radiation Technology".

The professorship for applied physics in the field of bioelectrics at the University of Rostock deals with the investigation of the interaction of electrical stimulation with cells and tissues. Stimuli of interest are non-thermal plasmas but especially pulsed electric fields. Mechanisms investigated are in particular molecular processes at cell membranes and cell constituents and thereby directly and causally related biochemical and biological processes. These include charging processes, the possible membrane por tion and the transport processes provoked by these processes. Current research topics include the influence of pulsed electric fields on the cohesion and communication of cells in tissues, the analysis of dielectric tissue properties, e.g. bone, by impedance spectroscopy, and transient changes in the structure of biomolecules in strong electric fields. Biological and biophysical principles related to the research topic are covered in the lecture "Molecular and Cellular Biophysics" of the International Master Program "Physics of Life, Light and Matter". Lecture and research area have a strong interdisciplinary orientation and research activities are accordingly linked to the activities of the Department Life, Light, Matter (LL&M) of the Interdisciplinary Faculty of the University of Rostock.

The professorship "Plasmas for Surfaces" at the Institute of Physics of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Rostock is concerned with the fundamentals of technical plasmas, which are used, among other things, in surface treatment, environmental technology or plasma chemical synthesis. The focus is on non-thermal plasmas at atmospheric pressure.

In addition to applications, the main focus is on how plasma-wall interaction processes affect plasma properties in the bulk. For example, the discharge regime can be modified by surface processes. A variety of plasma diagnostic methods are available for the investigation of the plasmas. The research activities are integrated into the research focus "Plasma Chemical Processes" at INP in Greifwald.

The current teaching program includes advanced methods for micro- and nanotechnology in material synthesis and surface processing, including plasma methods, as well as for the analysis of micro- and nanostructured surfaces and materials, primarily microscopy. In addition, experiments are offered in the advanced practical course.
