EU funds INP Greifswald with major project

12.06.2013
The European Union awards the major project „PlasmaShape“ (Plasma applications) to the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP Greifswald), funding it with 2,64 million Euro.

The funds will in particular focus on the research infrastructure, the recruitment of top-class researchers as well as the cooperation with experts on an international level.

The director of the INP, Klaus-Dieter Weltmann values this funding as “an acknowledgement of already delivered as well as an incentive for further research accomplishments on highest European level”.

The INP Greifswald is Europe’s biggest non-university research institute in the area of low temperature plasmas. Now, it is imperative to “further strengthen Greifswald as a competence region for plasma technology and its transfer into the industry”, says Weltmann.

This development will sustainably effect the research location Western Pomerania. Companies are invited to participate in this development, in order to place state-of-the-art products on the market.

Plasma technology combines different research and industry branches; it is not only limited to one sector but instead is a key and cross-sectional technology with a high potential for innovation and added value. Especially during the last years, the number of possible applications of plasma technology has grown immensely. Plasma TVs, solar cells, plasma treated packages or textiles are already an inherent part of our lives. However, it is not detectable to the consumer that the final product is plasma treated and that its special characteristics are due to the use of plasma.

The researchers in Greifswald will strengthen their efforts to continue the success story of the application oriented basic research of low temperature plasmas. According to Weltmann “Greifswald will, with the University of Greifswald, the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics and the INP Greifswald, regain its status as the German centre for plasma research”.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
