General Information

The International Workshop “Microwave Discharges: Fundamentals and Applications” is a three year periodical meeting which is held by turns in Russia and other countries. The main purpose is to discuss recent achievements in the study of microwave plasmas, identify directions for future research and promote a close relationship among scientists from different countries.

Conference Scope

The scientific program covers all modern aspects of microwave discharges connecting fundamental research and applications. The preliminary topics of the workshop are:

  • Methods of microwave plasma generation.
  • High and low pressure microwave discharges.
  • Continuous wave and pulsed microwave discharges.
  • Interaction of microwaves with plasma.
  • Discharge modeling and diagnosis.
  • Applications of microwave plasmas (surface treatment, etching, film deposition, growth of structures, ecology, improvement of burning processes, light sources, plasma medicine, analytical chemistry, etc).

Selected topics of closely-related gas discharge problems can also be discussed.

Talks and Paper Presentations

The program will consist of general lectures (35 min), topical lectures (20 min) and poster presentations. Parallel sections are not planned.

The International Scientific Committee (ISC) will select speakers to give general and topical lectures and for poster presentations. To allow the selection, one page abstract is required. Abstracts will be published in a booklet and will be handed out at the beginning of the Workshop.

Speakers are requested to submit an article at the start of the workshop. The Workshop proceedings will be refereed and published as a book or CD-ROM after the Workshop. The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) will send the proceedings to all registered participants immediately after publishing. For publishing an article in the proceedings it is necessary that at least one of the authors is registered and participates.
