Distinguished Chair Professorship at Feng Chia University in Taiwan
The Feng Chia University in Taiwan has appointed Dr. Ralf Bandorf, manager of the group ”Highly Ionized Plasmas and PECVD” at the Fraunhofer IST as ”Distinguished Chair Professor FCU”. In doing so the university pays tribute to the longstanding good scientific cooperation. Thus, on June 1st, 2018 a Memorandum of Understanding was signed that sealed the partnership between Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST and Feng Chia University, that had already existed since 2014. A successful cooperation has developed especially in the field of high power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS), an innovative coating technology and the special field of Ralf Bandorf. The goal is now to build a joint center for highly ionized plasmas.
