NCPST Visitor: Dr. James Ellis

Dr James Ellis, from Oxford Instruments, visited the NCPST. During his visit, James presented a talk on his research on the production mechanism of ammonia in a H2/N2 plasma, which he completed during his time as a postdoc at INP Greifswald. This is based on a recent publication in Applied Physics Letters ( In addition, James also had the opportunity to visit the NCPST laboratories, which include a number of Oxford Instruments Plasma Reactors. The visit was a great opportunity for NCPST researchers to discuss the operation of the different reactors and also for James to see first-hand the work being conducted at NCPST and to connect with the tool users.
