SOWAS - Self-Oriented Scientific Work In Studies

In the SOWAS-F practical course, students can choose from several blocks (solid state, nuclear, plasma, astro).
In the field of  plasma physics the following topics are currently offered:

  • Differences between plasmas in atomic and molecular gases
  • Comparison of capacitively and inductively coupled plasmas (CCP x ICP)
  • Effect of gas impurities on the performance of low temperature plasmas
  • Reactive plasma sputtering
  • Distribution functions in low temperature plasmas

The tools, diagnostics and methods used are

Previous SOWAS projects in the field of plasma physics were

  • Ammonia synthesis in plasmas
  • Detection limits of plasma diagnostic methods
