Title： Characterization of Plasma Activated Water and Plasma Activated Microbubbles Using Atmospheric-Pressure Plasma Jet with a Slot-Shape Electrode.
Date: 2019/9/17 (Thu) 3:30 pm - 5:20 pm
Location: Engineering 5 Building B1 International Conference Hall
Discharge in water has been applied in many fields and considered as a promising tool in biomedicine due to the effect of some long-lived reactive oxygen and nitrogen species along with some very short-lived species. These species have been proved to be very important for effective sterilization. However, the concentration of those species in water treated by plasma jet are generally insufficient for many applications. This talk is going to introduce a new method that combines microbubble with plasma jet to enhance the mass transfer and thus greatly increase the concentration of the reactive chemical species in water.
