Cold Plasma


Extreme density, low-temperature plasmas for electronics, aerospace, food science and biotechnology applications. Low-temperature plasmas (LTP) are weakly ionized gases that are being extensively used in fluorescent lights and in microchip fabrication. New ways of generating and controlling LTP could lead to new applications ranging from medicine and food processing to enhancing aerodynamics and propulsion performance of existing and future airplanes. The ability of plasmas to interact with electromagnetic waves, combined with controllability and tunability of plasma characteristics, could enable novel radio-frequency devices.
