Recent publications


Stephan Reuter is associate professor for plasma physics and spectroscopy at the Engineering Physics Department of Polytechnique Montréal and holds the TransMedTech chair for plasma medicine. He is alumnus of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

From 2017 to 2018, he was Feodor-Lynen Fellow at Princeton University. He established the “plasmatis” physics research group for plasma medicine at the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology INP Greifswald, Germany. He was visiting professor at Université Paris-Sud/Paris-Saclay and at Lublin Technical University, Poland, and was a research fellow at the center for plasma physics at Queen’s University Belfast, UK.

His research involves the interaction of non-thermal plasmas with liquids and diagnostic methods such as ultrafast laser spectroscopy, spectral imaging, and single shot techniques. Studied application fields are plasmas for medicine, environment, and material synthesis.
