Extended reaction kinetics model for non-thermal argon plasmas and its test against experimental data - dataset

Modelling results obtained using an extended reaction kinetics model (RKM) suitable for the analysis of weakly ionised, non-thermal argon plasmas with gas temperatures around 300K at sub-atmospheric and atmospheric pressures are presented. Modelling was performed by means of a time- and space-dependent fluid model for two different dielectric barrier discharge configurations as well as for a micro-scaled atmospheric-pressure plasma jet setup. The results are also compared with measurements, as well as with modelling data obtained by use of a previously established 15-species RKM.

Plasmaskop Jet

The Plasmaskop Jet has originally been designed to be inserted into the working channel of a conventional endoscope. It has a tube-like character, is flexible, very thin and generates a biologically active jet plasma at the gas outlet. The device consists of an inner plastic tube, a ceramic nozzle, an outer plastic tube and a metal wire. The inner plastic tube is plugged upon the thin end of the ceramic nozzle. In order to provide high voltage at the end of the tube and at the same time maintain tube flexibility the metal wire is coiled around the inner tube.

Modular Plasma Jet Treatment System

The invention relates to a modular plasma jet treatment system (1), particularly for therapeutic or oral applications, comprising a plasma source (2) with least the following components; a high-voltage module (20) comprising a high-voltage electrode (21) and first connection means, a plasma jet applicator (30) configured to generate at least one plasma jet (35), wherein the plasma jet applicator (30) comprises a cavity (31) for a process gas (100), wherein a ceiling portion (32) of the cavity (31) is either arranged on the plasma jet applicator (30) and/or on the high-voltage module (20), t
