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.
European Summer School on Plasma
Applications in Material Science (PAMS-2011)
The summer school addresses to 4th year and post-graduate students from participating institutions in Germany
(Greifswald, Kiel), Czech Republic (Charles University Prague), Poland (TU Gdansk, Koszalin University of Technology,
TU Szczecin), and Sweden (Linköping University).
Financially supported by:
European Commission through Education, Audiovisual, and Culture Executive Agency, and
German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
