Scientific research is an important factor in the analysis of new technologies. It is important to have independent scientific data especially when we are talking about plasma technology. Plasmas are very complex and it is easy to make claims that are not based on true scientific fact. You can get a more detailed explanation about […]

Handheld Plasma Sabre Kills Bacteria

June 5, 2012

2

Atmospheric plasma created in air are known to kill bacteria.  The killing effect is not fully understood but it results from the very reactive nature of the plasma. To explain this the typical atmospheric plasma is a non-equilibrium plasma. This means that the electrons are accelerated by the strong electrical field. Because the electron is […]

Dr. Jörg Ihde and Dr. Uwe Lommatzsch

Atmospheric Plasmas are being used in a wide range of applications in the area of useful coatings, that is coatings that give a material a special functions such as self-cleaning, scratch proof or anti-bacterial properties. The term “Functional coatings” is used to describe these and in the current example, a novel plasma nozzle is used […]
