Final RAPID Conference

The final RAPID conference was integrated in the 9th international Workshop on Microplasma held 5.6.-9.6.2017 in Garmisch Partenkirchen.

19.04.2017 - RAPID workshop in Eindhoven

The workshop with the focus on "Process technology from Nano-Scale to Large-scale" and "Emerging concepts in diagnostics and modellingof the EU programm RAPID was between April 11th and 13th, 2017 at the Eindhoven University of Technlogy.

In sum 15 contributions were presented of researchers of different fields, from PhD students to well-known professors. In between the sessions, discussions about different research topics and the lab tour helped the workshop to reach its successfulness.

The Bochum group with three participants from the Research Department Plasmas with Complex Interactions could welcome a former member of the group, Dr. Gina Oberbossel. She was one of the presenter at the workshop and visited the labs in Bochum previously to the workshop.
