The effect of oxygen admixture on the properties of microwave generated plasma in Ar-O₂ : a modelling study - dataset

This work presents the datasets of the results of a self-consistent modelling analysis on microwave plasma generated in Ar-O₂ mixtures at a frequency of 2.45 GHz at atmospheric pressure. The study focuses on how the plasma properties are in uenced by the increase of the oxygen fraction in the gas mixture. The oxygen admixture is increased from 1 up to 95 % in mass for values of the input microwave power of 1 and 1.5 kW.

Antibacterial Surface Modification for Medical Devices

The invention relates to a medical device comprising a biocompatible material having an exposed surface prone to biofilm growth. The biocompatible material comprises a doping of an antibacterial metal compound. A concentration of the doping compound ranges from 1% to 30% (w/w) within an outer layer adjacent to the exposed surface, and is essentially zero within a bulk layer of the biocompatible material.
