Technology Readiness Level: 


Due to its high degree of flexibility, the microwave plasma source MiniMIP is suitable for various different applications and experiments. The plasma can be ignited in both pure argon and pure helium, and furthermore, an admixture of molecular gases to can be used to provide an optimal matching of the process chemistry to the requirements of the specific application. Moreover, the wide operating range with regards to gas flow and microwave power along with the inherent high plasma temperature are essential prerequisites for various applications in decontamination, ultra-fine cleaning and activation of surfaces as well as real-time sample preparation speciation analysis approaches. These properties make the MiniMIP plasma source a powerful tool in production and analytic application fields of industry and research.
