Device for generating a non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma

The invention relates to a device for generating a cold, HF-excited plasma under atmospheric pressure conditions, comprising a metal housing functioning as a grounded electrode in the region of the emergent plasma, wherein an HF generator, an HF resonance coil having a closed ferrite core suitable for the high frequency, an insulating body acting as a gas nozzle, and a high-voltage electrode mounted in the insulating body are disposed in such a manner that they are permeated or circulated around by process gas.
