By its high degree of flexibility the microwave plasma source MiniMIP allows the efficient use in various sophisticated applications and experiments. The alternative use of pure argon, helium optionally complemented by admixture of molecular gases ensures the ability of matching the process chemistry to the requirements of the specific application.
The non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma jet (ntAPPJ) is composed of a quartz capillary with an inner diameter of 4 mm and an outer diameter of 6 mm. The plasma jet operates at a high frequency of 27.12 MHz in pure noble gases (helium, neon, argon, krypton) at flow rates between 0.1 and 2 slm. Small molecular gas admixtures or organic vapors can be added to the carrier gas. Two outer ring electrodes (width 5 mm, distance 5 mm) are adjusted concentrically with the capillary axis.
The HelixJet is a capacitively coupled radio-frequency (RF) plasma source operating at atmospheric pressure. The RF power is applied to two double helix electrodes. The electrodes are placed outside a quartz tube fed by the working gas. The HelixJet has unique features highly relevant for practical applications. The innovative double helix electrode design enables extremely stable and homogeneous plasma conditions at low gas flow rates. This plays a crucial role for the quality and reproducibility of several applications, e.g.
The Plasmaskop plasma source is 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.
This plasma source is a commercial welding power source produced by Miller Electric Manufacturing Co., Appleton / USA. This welding system is precise, digitally controlled and software-driven. Several different wire feeding and operator interface options are available and configurable to desired application. The welding system allows a simple method that controls arc length for pulse processes and wetting action and allows changing weld programs to take advantage of up to eight programs of Multi-MIG welding process capabilities.
