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 two re­se­arch di­vi­si­ons Plas­mas for Ma­te­ri­als and En­er­gy
(Head: Prof. Dirk Uhrlandt) and En­vi­ron­ment and Health (Head: Prof. Klaus-Die­ter Welt­mann) each co­ver­ing three 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.  More...


Research Groups

Research groups at INP are concerned with plasma wound healing, plasma source concepts, agricultural culture, and materials for energy technology.

Environment and Health

The research area, Plasmas for Environment and Health focuses on interdisciplinary topics and uses the synergies of its three research priorities: Bioactive surfaces, plasma medicine and decontamination.  More...


Junior Research Groups

The INP promotes young researchers at all levels of the institute and beyond. With our application-oriented basic research, we inspire the next generation of scientists to work on topics relevant to society as a whole.
