WS - Modeling of plasma-materials interactions

Workshop: Modeling of plasma-materials interactions

Chair: Dr. Yann Cressault, Laplace laboratory,

WS will be held on Thursday, the 6th of September during the GD2018 conference in Novi Sad, Serbia.
The main topics will be mainly focused on the thermal plasmas and the modeling of the plasma-materials interactions. Two kind of presentations will be proposed : the first one one the modeling of plasma-electrodes-polymers interactions existing in many applications such as welding or cutting processes, circuit breakers and so on; the second one on the modeling of plasma-particles interactions (nanoparticles, powders, …). The workshop will consist of reports on the methods used to model plasma-materials interactions followed by a discussion session on future of the field.
