As much as we enjoy exploring new fields of application, our research has always been based on one underlying interest: the elementary processes in and the physics of plasmas
In the EPG group, we use our thorough understanding of elementary processes to develop predictive models of a large range of plasmas. These models take into account the intensity and effectivity of processes such as ionization, recombination, transport, radiation, excitation, de-excitation, chemical reactions and surface processes.
We integrate state-of-the art plasma diagnostics (imaging, passive and active spectroscopy) and advanced plasma models that enable plasma users to optimize the plasma source for their specific application. Over the years, the group has worked on a wide range of applications: plasma etching, lighting, medical applications and so much more.
Work with us!
All positions are open from May 15, 2019, and are open only to female candidates in the framework of the new Irène Curie Fellowship program of TU/e. Review of applications will begin immediately upon receipt, and continue until the positions are filled, with the last date for applications being November 15, 2019.
Please check out the TU/e Vacancies page for further opportunities within our group.
