Welcome to the website of the
European Summer School in Plasma Physics in Science and Technology (PPST)

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.

The summer school addresses to 4th year and post-graduate students from participating institutions in Germany (Greifswald, Kiel), Poland (Koszalin University of Technology, TU Szczecin) and Czech Republic (Charles University).

The first summer school was held in 2007 in Greifswald. This second summer school 2008 will be held in Koszalin is devoted to including laboratory courses applications of low temperature plasmas.

The lectures of the Course will be held in the Building B, lecture hall 103B of Koszalin University of Technology, located at Sniadeckich Street 2. Participants will meet there to have lunch together (University restaurant "Rogaliczek", ground floor of the same building) at 12:30 on Monday, August 18, 2008

Laboratory courses will be organized in Building F (Institute of Mechatronics, Nanotechnology and Vacuum Technique) at Raclawicka Street 15-17.

European Commission through Education, Audiovisual, and Culture Executive Agency, and
