Preconference Tutorials

Fundamental Processes, Modeling and Diagnostics of Low-Temperature Plasmas
Saturday, September 28 (10:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.)
Sunday, September 29 (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.)

Agenda is now available format_pdf

Course Facilitators
Igor D. Kaganovich (PPPL) and Jose L. Lopez (Seton Hall University)

Preconference tutorial is offered as an educational service from DOE Center  for “Predictive Control of Plasma Kinetics: Multi-phase and Bounded Systems”  to the GEC community. The speakers will introduce important topics in plasma physics related to plasma processing applications to a broader audience.

Who Should Attend?
The objective of this short course is to provide background and outline recent developments in plasma processing applications. It will cover basics of rf discharges (M. A. Lieberman),  plasma surface interaction (V. M. Donnelly, R. Boswell), probe diagnostics (V.A. Godyak, V.I. Demidov, and Y. Raitses) and numerical modeling with Vlasov codes (V.I. Kolobov) and pic codes (D. Sydorenko), as well as kinetic theory (I.D. Kaganovich). The attendants will be given opportunity for informal discussions with speakers.
