General description: Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is a relatively young research university, founded in 1956, that specializes in engineering science and technology and has profiled itself into one of the leading international institutions with a clear focus on excellence. Plasma & Materials Processing (PMP) is a group at the Department of Applied Physics focusing on the study of the interaction of plasma and reactive gasses with materials by advanced diagnostics. Within PMP the Plasma-based gas conversion sub-group strives to obtain fundamental understanding of the kinetics and dynamics of plasma conversion of gases, both through experiments and modelling.

Persons involved in Pioneer

Richard Engeln is Associate Professor at the Department of Applied Physics at TU/e where he is the head of the Plasma-based gas conversion sub-group within PMP. His research interests include spectroscopic studies using Raman, CARS and CRD spectroscopy of molecules in a broad range of plasmas. Currently, he focuses on development of optical diagnostics to study the reaction kinetics and dynamics of gas conversion processes.
