Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
Course objectives
The aim of the course is to show and get own experiences with basic and advanced methods used for plasma diagnostics and simulation. Emphasis is given on methods that are accessible on the department. Students are asked to get this experiences at the beginning of their PhD study, so that they get broader and deeper insight into the field of their thesis.
Learning outcomes
Students will get own experience with diagnostics and simulation methods used in plasma physics.
  • Time correlated single-photon counting, local electric field determination
  • Ground and metastable density determination by self-absorption
  • Electric field modelling in COMSOL
  • Phase-resolved Schlieren photography, ICCD imaging
  • Collisional-Radiative modelling in ZD Plaskin
  • Spectroscopy of diatomic molecules, laser-induced fluorescence
  • frequency analysis of electrical measurements in low pressure capacitively coupled plasma
