DPPT Photo Contest 2024
The Department of Plasma Physics and Technology organizes a photo contest!
Our research activities primarily address fundamental issues in physics and chemistry related to discharges and plasmas in both gaseous and liquid environments. We aim to experimentally determine key plasma parameters such as electric field strength, electron-related properties (including electron distribution function, electron temperature, and density), and the densities of significant plasma species. These investigations are conducted at extremely small spatial and temporal scales using advanced spectroscopic and electrical techniques.
To support our experimental work, we employ analytical models and computer simulations. Numerical modeling plays a crucial role in deeply understanding gas discharge physics and the underlying plasma phenomena. It also allows us to conduct 'numerical experiments' in conditions often challenging or beyond conventional experimental methods' capabilities. Leveraging our profound expertise in plasma physics, our group collaborates with numerous international research institutions and industry partners.
ESCAMPIG 1st Announcement is here! The ESCAMPIG (Europhysics Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics and Ionized Gases) is a biennial conference of EPS (European Physical Society). Conference topics are basic and applied plasma research. It will be held in Brno for the first time in Czechia on 9-13 July 2024.
9-13 July 2024 will belong to the ESCAMPIG (Europhysics Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics and Ionized Gases). The ESCAMPIG 2024 is a biennial conference of EPS (European Physical Society). Conference topics are basic and applied plasma research. The event is organized by the Department of Plasma Physics and Technology of Masaryk University, the CEPLANT Center, and the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists.
Plasma diagnostics using TALIF can lead to a better understating of plasma conversion of fuel gases. Dr. Mateusz Wnukowski from Wroclaw came to the Department of Plasma Physics and Technology to learn about laser diagnostics in more detail. His research aims to make more effective and environmentally friendly alternatives to the presently used technologies for fuel conversion.
