Second International Workshop on Microplasmas


HOBOKEN, N.J. -- The Department of Physics at Stevens Institute of Technology will host the Second International Workshop on Microplasmas, Oct. 6-8, on the Stevens campus in Hoboken, N.J. For full information on registration, location and transport, please visit:

The First International Workshop on Microplasmas took place in February 2003 in Hyogo, Japan, and was organized by Professor Kunihide Tachibana of Kyoto University.

Dr. Kurt Becker, professor and director of Physics at Stevens, organized the three-day conference. "There are exciting scientific and emerging technological opportunities involving plasmas with linear dimensions in ým-range, with operating pressures up to and exceeding atmospheric pressure," said Becker. "That will be the subject of our workshop, devoted exclusively to the science and applications of these microplasmas and microdischarges."

The workshop program will feature Invited Plenary Talks (45 minutes) and Invited Progress Reports (30 minutes). All Contributed Papers will be presented in a single Poster Session. In addition, there will be a symposium on "Environmental and Biological Applications of Microplasmas" organized and sponsored by the Center for Environmental Systems (CES) at Stevens, directed by Dr. Christos Christodoulatos. Becker is also an associate director of the CES.
