An atmospheric plasma produces many species. But which ones, and what role do they play? We take a closer look.
We’re at the 23rd International Symposium on Plasma Chemistry – come say hi!
JPhysD presents the 2017 Plasma Roadmap: the first of a planned series of periodic updates to the original Plasma Roadmap that was published in 2012.
“I am hoping that there will be an even higher level of cooperation and collaboration amongst researchers and clinicians in this field, leading to larger, multi-centre clinical trials of plasma in wound decontamination/healing and cancer therapy.”
We look back at the articles which were most popular with our readers in the last 12 months.
Treatability of different chemical contaminants can be estimated simply by evaluating the extent to which they resemble a surfactant.
Peroxynitric acid formed in water by plasma exposure is a key molecule for bactericidal effect.
Cold plasma discharges as a powerful tool for future space exploration missions?
“We hope cold plasma could become a clinical anti-cancer tool in the near future, and we are ready to accelerate such a process.”
Can the application of plasma make catalysis more effective?
How does it work?
