The Gaseous Electronics Conference (GEC)

October 3 - 7, 2022

Sendai, Japan


A special meeting of the APS Division of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics (DAMOP), promotes ideas on the physical and chemical processes and dynamics taking place in partially ionized, collisional plasma and between the atoms, molecules, charged particles, photons, waves, and fields. The GEC has a long leadership history of presenting fundamental and basic science contributions on plasma sources, diagnostics, simulation, plasma chemistry, basic phenomena, atomic and molecular processes. In recent years, GEC has also been a leading venue for reporting on emergent areas of plasma-biotechnology, plasma medicine, multiphase plasmas, environmental applications and atmospheric-pressure plasma systems. The 2022 GEC will continue its tradition of offering a truly outstanding venue for leading research in low temperature plasma science and collision physics. Topics from fundamental plasma research to new applications are expected to be discussed during GEC 2022.
