The dataset contains a set of 180 images showing the dynamics of the effluent of the kINPen Science at a distance of 7 mm in front of a grounded copper plate. The image data set can be analysed by means of the open-source BLITZ image viewer (https://github.com/CodeSchmiedeHGW/BLITZ), shading light on the plasma-induced flow dynamics.
The spatial density distribution of H2O2 in the effluent of the COST-Jet and the kINPen-sci operated with a humidified helium feed gas - dataset
This work serves to highlight the difference of the distinct spatial distribution of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) in the effluent of the kINPen-sci plasma jet and the COST reference microplasma jet (COST Jet) operated with humidified helium. For this purpose, the density of H2O2 has been measured spatially resolved using cavity-enhanced absorption spectroscopy employing continuous wave cavity ring-down spectroscopy (cw-CRDS) with a tunable mid-infrared laser.
Validation of THz absorption spectroscopy by a comparison with ps-TALIF measurements of atomic oxygen densities
This data set contains the data shown in the corresponding publication in Applied Physics Letters (https://doi.org/10.1063/5.0160303). This publication presents a benchmark of THz absorption spectroscopy against a more established method. Atomic oxygen densities were measured with THz absorption spectroscopy and compared to those obtained from picosecond (ps) two-photon absorption laser induced fluorescence (TALIF) measurements on the same capacitively coupled radio frequency oxygen discharge.
The localised density of H₂O₂ in the effluent of a cold atmospheric pressure plasma jet determined by continuous-wave cavity ring-down spectroscopy
The data set comprises full cavity ring-down spectra and absorption coefficients obtained from on/off-resonance measurements, in order to determine the spatial distribution of H2O2 in the cold atmospheric pressure plasma jet kINPen-sci. Therefore, the plasma jet was operated with 3 slm Ar and 3000 ppm water, and was equipped with a gas curtain of 5 slm O2. To determine the effective absorption length, the H2O2 absorption was measured in radial direction. These radial fits had a Gaussian-like shape.
Formation mechanisms of striations in a filamentary dielectric barrier discharge in atmospheric pressure argon - dataset
The results of the modelling of a filamentary dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) in argon at atmospheric pressure obtained using a time-dependent and spatially two-dimensional fluid-Poisson model in axisymmetric geometry are provided in this dataset. The model was employed to investigate the formation mechanisms of the striations along the discharge channel in a one-sided DBD arrangement with a 1.5 mm gap powered by a sinusoidal high voltage applied at the metal electrode.
This data set contains the data shown in the corresponding publication in Plasma Sources Science and Technology (https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-6595/acb815). This publication presents the first implementation of terahertz (THz) quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) for high-resolution absorption spectroscopy on plasmas. Absolute densities of ground state atomic oxygen were directly obtained by using the fine structure transition at approximately 4.75 THz.
Exploring the mechanisms leading to diffuse and filamentary modes in dielectric barrier discharges in N2 with N2O admixtures - Dataset
The effects of nitrous oxide (N2O) in nitrogen (N2) on the development and morphology of sine-driven dielectric barrier discharges in a single-filament arrangement were studied. Detailed insight in the characteristics of the discharge and its development were obtained from electrical measurements combined with ICCD and streak camera recordings as well as numerical modelling. A miniaturised atmospheric pressure Townsend discharge (APTD) could be generated for admixtures up to 5vol% N2O in N2 although N2O is an efficient collisional quencher of metastable nitrogen molecules.
Verified modeling of a low pressure hydrogen plasma generated by electron cyclotron resonance - dataset
A self-consistent ﬂuid model has been successfully developed and employed to model an electron cyclotron resonance driven hydrogen plasma at low pressure. This model has enabled key insights to be made on the mutual interaction of microwave propagation, power density, plasma generation, and species transport at conditions where the critical plasma density is exceeded. The model has been veriﬁed by two experimental methods.
Upscaling from single- to multi-filament dielectric barrier discharges in pulsed operation - Dataset
A study on the scalability of discharge characteristics of a single-filament dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) to a spatially one-dimensional multi-filament arrangement driven by the same high-voltage (HV) pulses was performed for a gas mixture of 0.1 vol% O2 in N2 at 1 bar. Both arrangements feature a 1 mm gap with dielectric-covered electrodes featuring two hemispherical alumina caps for the single-filament and two parallel alumina-tubes for the multi-filament arrangement.
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.
