RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

FROM IDEA TO PROTOTYPE

 

The INP is conducting basic research focusing on high frequency electrical signal diagnostics. Our aim is the absolute ion density measurement (MAID) by evaluating ion acoustic wave oscillations within the current signal, supported by plasma modeling. The DFG project involves the setup of a ground loop free electrical current measurement system with high bandwidth. The recording, identification and analysis of ion acoustic waves within the current signals as well as the adaptation of the measurement system to different discharge configurations at atmospheric pressure is the central task. We offer a project position in Karlsburg near Greifswald, starting on 1st January 2022 as
