They received the prestigious student awards of excellence for the best oral and best poster presentation at the joined meeting of 63rd Gaseous Electronics Conference (GEC) and 7th International Conference on Reactive Plasmas (ICRP) held in the Masion de la Chemise in Paris, France 4th to 8th October 2010.
Their presentations entitled
“Micro-Plasma Generation in Salt Containing Liquids” and “Formation of reactive oxygen species and negative ions in radio-frequency driven He/O2 atmospheric pressure plasmas” were given to an audience of more than 700 delegates.
CPP PhD student wins Poster Competition in
HAMAD AHMED, a CPP PhD student, has won the prize for best student poster at the recent All Ireland celebration of "The Laser at 50". The meeting was held at QUB on 13 September 2010 and organised by QUB, supported by the Institute of Physics in Ireland,.

In a three year research project entitled ‘Next generation techniques for analysis of biomolecular systems’, Chris will be investigating the application of femtosecond laser technology to studies of biomolecular structure and dynamics.
The research will be carried out using ion-storage devices and ultrafast light sources in the Centre for Plasma Physics (QUB) and at laboratories in Dublin City University and Aarhus University.
