The 3rd United States Low Temperature Plasma Summer School (USLTPSS) will be held June 24-28, 2024, on the campus of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. The USLTPSS is intended to provide an opportunity for graduate students and researchers new to the low temperature (LTP) field to be immersed in the fundamentals and applications of LTPs for one week and to learn from leading researchers in their field.


The topics for the Summer School will include:

  • Introduction to Plasmas
  • Low Pressure Plasmas
  • High Pressure Plasmas
  • Magnetized Collisional Plasmas
  • Plasma Kinetics
  • Plasma Chemistry
  • Thermal Plasmas
  • Dusty Plasmas
  • Plasma Sources and Power Design
  • Fluid Modeling
  • Diagnostics
  • Plasma Medicine
  • Environmental and Agricultural Applications
  • Plasma Aided Combustion and Flow Control
  • High Pressure Materials Processing
  • Energy Applications of Plasmas
  • Special Session on Plasma Materials Processing for Semiconductor Fabrication
    • Etching
    • Deposition
    • Feature Scale
    • Machine Learning and Process Control

A poster session will be held for attendees to share their own research.
