  • Plasma processing of materials has emerged as the enabling technology for many industrial applications ranging from the fabrication of microelectronic circuits to coatings for advanced combustion engines. After impressive, mainly empirical successes, further developments now require more precise control and understanding of the mechanisms for selective deposition, etching, or reaction. The electron temperature of a non-equilibrium plasma can easily be 20,000 K while the gas temperature is less than 500 K. The reactivity of the plasma-excited gases is often enhanced by many orders of magnitude. Electron and ion collisions, especially those causing dissociation of the initial gases, and reactions ofmore » the resulting radicals with gases and at surfaces are crucial. Extant collisional data and methods are reviewed in the context of emerging technological requirements. Examples are presented for (1) crossed-beam and swarm studies of electron-molecule collisions; (2) Fourier Transform Mass spectrometry probes of dissociative ionization, attachment, and charge-transfer collisions, and (3) Surface Desorption Spectroscopy examinations of surface reactions.« less
  • The 2010 Gordon Research Conference on Plasma Processing Science will feature a comprehensive program that will highlight the most cutting edge scientific advances in low temperature plasma science and will explore the applications of low temperature plasma technology relative to many grand societal challenges. Fundamental science sessions will focus on plasma kinetics, plasma surface interactions, and recent trends in plasma generation and multi-phase plasmas. Application sessions will explore the impact of plasma technology in renewable energy and the production of fuels from renewable feedstocks, plasma-enabled medicine and sterilization, and environmental remediation and waste treatment. The conference will bring together inmore » an informal atmosphere leaders in the field with junior investigators and graduate students. The special format of the Gordon Conferences, with programmed discussion sessions and ample time for informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, will provide for a fertile atmosphere of brainstorming and creative thinking among the attendees.« less

  • Ceramic materials are of great interest for energy programs because of their mechanical properties at high temperature, and their capability to withstand high temperature hostile environments. An understanding is needed for the effect of small amounts of impurities. A chart is given which shows the interrelation of fabrication or processing/materials response/character/properties. (FS)
