Atomic and Plasma Physics

Group of Prof. Fritz Aumayr

Research Thesis Opportunities Group Members News

Research activities in the “Atomic and Plasma Physics” group are focused on the interaction of (multi-charged) ion beams and (femtosecond) laser radiation with matter (atoms, molecules, surfaces) both from a fundamental point of view and because of their relevance for plasma-wall interaction, fusion plasma diagnostics, material processing and medical applications.

A major part of the research program is being carried out within Austrian fusion research program Fusion@ÖAW funded by the Horizon 2020 project EUROfusion. Our research is further funded by Austrian Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung FWF, Austrian Academy of Sciences ÖAW and Friedrich Schiedel-Stiftung für Energietechnik. The group participated in the EU networks ITS LEIF (HPRI-CT-2005-026015) and was one of the member groups in the EU networks LEIF (HPRI-CT-1999-40012) and MCInet (HPRN-CT-2000-00027).
