The Summer School was held for the first time at the University of Minnesota in 2022 and was inspired by the successful Low-Temperature Plasma School in Bad Honnef, Germany. The Summer School is intended to provide an opportunity for graduate students to be immersed in the fundamentals and applications of low-temperature plasmas for one week and to learn from leading researchers in their field. The US location will enable a new cohort of students to benefit from this experience. It is our hope that the School will also lead to strengthening our dynamic US low-temperature plasma community.
The ILTPC is an informal organization with an international membership of researchers from the field of low temperature plasmas. This newsletter was established in April 2020 with the goal of being a forum for communication, collaboration, and conversation within the LTP community.
One-week school held in Bad Honnef, Germany. The school provides an opportunity to graduate students to be immersed in the fundamentals and applications of low-temperature plasmas for one week and to learn from leading researchers in their field.
Consensus report that aims to help federal agencies, policymakers, and academic leadership understand the importance of plasma research and make informed decisions about plasma science funding, workforce, and research directions.
K-12 and undergraduate education, and community outreach
Demonstration Lecture for Middle School and High School Students
Our group participated in the Discover STEM and Eureka Program at the University of Minnesota with a demonstration lecture on ‘The Wonders of Plasma’.
In collaboration with former group member-turned-Hamline University Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemistry, our group hosted several undergraduate student researchers in the summer of 2020. The students studied water treatment processes with non-equilibrium atmospheric pressure plasmas.
