»Plasma processes are applied in many areas for the deposition and modification of nano composites and nano structured layers. To improve these processes, which mostly take place far from the equilibrium, and to adjust them to the desired surface properties, many special diagnostic methods are required. Next to conventional methods (spectroscopy, electrostatic probes, mass spectrometry, etc.) we use nonconventional diagnostics (like calorimetric probes and force probes) for the investigation of plasma-wall interaction.«

Holger Kersten. Since February 2006 Professor for Experimental Physics. Prior to that head of the plasma processing technology department at the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Research and Technology (INP) in Greifswald. Before that assistant at the Institute for Physics at Greifswald University. Habilitation in 2000.
