DPG spring meeting in Greifswald
CRC 1316 members contribute to German Physics meeting
From February 26th to February 29th, the CRC 1316 joined the DPG spring conference, featuring four invited talks, numerous regular presentations, and engaging poster sessions, which took place in Greifswald. The event also witnessed active participation from our community, with one of our members as a part of the Advisory Board for Plasma Physics of the DPG.
Beyond the boundaries of SFB 1316, the conference served as a platform for networking and collaboration with researchers from the German Physical Society (DPG). The exchange of ideas, perspectives, and expertise among attendees further enriched the scientific dialogue and promoted a spirit of camaraderie among the scientific community.
PI meeting in Bochum
Two days of intensive collaboration and discussion marked the recent project meeting of the PIs of CRC 1316. Held at Beckmanns Hof in Bochum, the gathering on February 20 and February 21 showcased a commitment to shared goals and collective progress within the project. The meeting brought together PIs from the different groups. A significant portion of the two-day event was dedicated to in-depth discussions about ongoing projects, research findings, and the future trajectory of CRC 1316.
Research stay of Jan Kuhfeld in Japan
Jan Kuhfeld, an Early Career Researcher (ECR) affiliated with the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1316, has been chosen for a two-year research stay in Sapporo, Japan, through a fellowship granted by the Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS). During his stay, he will conduct optical diagnostics in Professor Sasaki's laboratory at Hokkaido University to measure particle densities of reactive species in atmospheric pressure plasmas.
The application process involved a two-week visit to Sapporo in April 2023, where the research project was elaborated upon in detail.
3rd Workshop on FAIR Data in Plasma Science
The 3rd Workshop on FAIR Data in Plasma Science will take place on May 13-14, 2024 at Kiel University, Kiel, Germany. There will be an option for virtual participation. The workshop is a continuation of successful events on research data management in the low-temperature plasma community in the past years. It aims to inform about current developments and to strengthen the exchange in the community on this topic. A further step in the series will be contributions to the needs and practical solutions related to the implementation of the FAIR data principles into practical research workflows. This covers both the field of laboratory experiments as well as modeling/simulations. A hands-on session will demonstrate how the electronic laboratory notebook system eLabFTW and the metadata creation tool Adamant can be set up and used in the field of plasma research.
Please fill out the registration form to register for the workshop (https://www.plasma-mds.org/ws-fair-data-plasma-science-3.html). Registration is free of charge. Note that the available seats for on-site participation are limited.
Deadline for registration: April 29, 2024

Plasma in Liquids for Materials
PIs from the CRC1316, together with experts in the field, organize a special issue on the topic of ''Plasma in Liquids for Materials" in the Journal of Applied Physics D.
Plasmas in Liquids for Materials is a rapidly developing field, where the intimate coupling between an intense plasma above and/or inside a liquid is coupled with the species chemistry of an electrolyte, including the solvent and species dissolved in that electrolyte or with solids next to the plasma. The materials synthesis and modification are most often driven by the liquid chemistry and/or the presence of large quantities of solvated electrons. Many of these processes are being explored application driven such as:
- formation of nanoparticles
- functionalizing surfaces
- micromachining surfaces
- polishing surfaces
The fundamental understanding from the plasma physics in these complex multiphase systems to the electrochemistry involving plasma-excited species, however, remains limited. this special issue aims at bridging this gap between fundamental plasma science and electrochemistry in these activated media with a focus on materials applications. we hope this collection will showcase advances in modelling and diagnostics of plasmas in liquids for materials applications, including electrochemistry, (electro)catalysis, nanoparticle formation and renewable energy applications in general.
