Plasma technology is a key technology, e.g., in microelectronics fabrication, nanotechnology and materials research, lighting and plasma displays, pollution control, and has major impact on the development of society. Although a plasma is considered the forth state of matter, it is not well recognised as a teaching and research discipline at universities. This summer school aims to promote the basics of plasma physics in a compact training course to be taught to undergraduate and postgraduate students with a background in natural science and engineering.
The summer school addresses to 3rd and 4th year and post-graduate students from participating institutions in Germany (Greifswald, Kiel), Poland (TU Koszalin, TU Szczecin) and Czech Republic (Charles University). In addition, participants from other countries will be accepted. A limited number of scholarships is available.
The first summer school during 2007 is devoted to fundamentals of plasma physics, plasma diagnostics and plasma sources including laboratory courses.
