Hippocamp at 42nd European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics

The recent results of HIPPOCAMP project were disseminated by Martin Čada from Institute of Physics, ASCR on the 42nd European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics. The annual conference organised by the European Physical Society is focused on presentation of recent achievements in the basic research on the fusion and low-temperature plasmas. This year the conference was held in historic heart of Lisbon – in Cultural Centre of Belém. According to organisers information more than 750 participants took part in the 42nd conference. Martin Čada during his oral presentation in the joint Low-temperature and Dusty Plasmas session presented recent achievements on advanced diagnostics of technological discharge in both the small-scale and industrial scale deposition systems during the hybrid PVD-PECVD process involving HiPIMS operation of discharge. During the presentation obtained results on a heating flux, ion flux and ionised fraction of depositing particles as measured for different magnetic field configurations when HiDS films are deposited were discussed. Obtained findings implied necessity to optimise the sputtering magnetron magnetic field together with HiPIMS parameters to reach required results of HIPPOCAMP project. One can be remark that presented findings elicited a positive response from audience.

Welcome to the EPS 2015 website

This conference continues a series of plasma physics conferences organized by the European Physical Society (EPS) covering the wide field of plasma physics, from nuclear fusion research to low temperature plasmas, as well as space and astrophysical plasmas.

The venue of the 42nd EPS conference will be Centro Cultural de Belém, the largest cultural center in Portugal, superbly located between the famous Jerónimos Monastery and the Tower of Belém, facing the riverfront west of Lisbon.

The sunniest European capital, Lisbon is one of the world’s most ancient cities, with a very rich history.
