99% OF THE VISIBLE UNIVERSE IS IN THE PLASMA STATE ANDTODAY'S TECHNOLOGIES AND DEVICES SUCH AS COMPUTERS, SMARTPHONES ETC., WOULD NOT BE A REALITY WITHOUT PLASMA PROCESSING OUR RESEARCH FOCUSES ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW, EXOTIC PLASMAS, TO PUSH THE FRONTIERS OF MATERIALS RESEARCH EVEN FURTHER
Plasma Materials Science is evolving as a major foundation for the development of advanced technological materials that find application in a large variety of emerging fields such as biotechnology, pharmaceutics and medicine, opto- and nanoelectronics. To address the challenges that the fabrication of new nanomaterials demands, the development of novel plasma techniques that allow to synthesize and process materials more efficiently, economically and ecologically, is necessary. This requires an interplay between different scientific and engineering disciplines. We hope to attract highly motivated students who are capable to 'think outside of the box' and are interested to work in an exceptionally interdisciplinary field and a research group that fosters international collaboration and exchange.
