Reactive Atmospheric Plasma processIng - eDucation network

Objective

"The goal of the Multi-Partner ITN-RAPID (Reactive Atmospheric Plasma processIng - eDucation network) is the realization of an interdisciplinary training involving the disciplines physics, chemistry and engineering. As a result, RAPID will create the platform for a truly European PhD in plasma technology. The scientific goal is the development of non-equilibrium reactive processes in atmospheric pressure plasmas. Thereby, the great success of low pressure plasmas enabling a multitude of applications ranging from material synthesis, automotive and microelectronics can be repeated. In addition, even more applications become possible due to the easy integration of atmospheric pressure plasmas in current industrial processes. Hot topics such as large area solar cells, barrier coatings to improve the permeation properties of polymers and plasma chemical gas conversion are selected. The research success requires a specific training covering diverse aspects such as modeling and simulation of plasmas and surfaces, diagnostic to validate these models and the implications for industrial scale-up. This will be trained in a coordinated effort involving 10 academic and 10 industrial partners from 8 European countries."
