The Leib­niz In­sti­tu­te for Plas­ma Sci­ence and Tech­no­lo­gy (INP) is the lar­gest non-uni­ver­si­ty in­sti­tu­te in the area of low tem­pe­ra­tu­re plas­mas in Eu­ro­pe, in­clu­ding their ba­sic re­se­arch and tech­ni­cal ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons.
The re­se­arch is or­ga­ni­zed in the three re­se­arch di­vi­si­ons Plas­mas for Ma­te­ri­als and En­er­gy
(Head: Prof. Dirk Uhrlandt), En­vi­ron­ment and Bioeconomy (Head: Prof. Klaus-Die­ter Welt­mann) and Hygiene and Healtch (Head: Prof. Thomas von Woedtke) each co­ver­ing two re­se­arch pro­grams at pre­sent.


Materials and Energy

The research division bundles issues of plasma applications in the areas of energy and production technology. This currently comprises application areas in the generation of functional coatings, thin layers and catalytically active materials by means of plasma processes, the plasma chemical synthesis as well as topics of the power and process engineering. 




Environment and Bioeconomy

The research division focuses on innovative and environmentally friendly topics and uses the synergies of its two research programmes: Plasma Chemical Processes and Agriculture, Biomass and Decontamination.




Hygiene and Health

With its two research programmes Plasma Surface Modification and Plasma Medicine, the research division develops novel, plasma-based applications in the field of health and medical technology.
