Spatial distribution of HO₂ in an atmospheric pressure plasma jet investigated by cavity ring-down spectroscopy - dataset

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 HO₂ 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 HO₂ absorption was measured in radial direction. These radial fits had a Gaussian-like shape.

Venturi-DBD (VDBD)

The gas pressure is an effective parameter to control plasma-chemical reactions, but its adjustment often requires substantial effort. In the Venturi-DBD (VDBD), the pressure can be set to any value between 100 mbar and 1000 mbar reliably and reproducibly. Using a Venturi pump for vacuum generation ensures that the system is affordable and almost maintenance-free. With air as process gas, the output gas composition can seamlessly be adjusted from a strongly ozone-dominated regime to a nitrogen oxides-only-regime including nitric oxide.


Plasma as a cross-sectional technology in many industry branches, but also in research laboratories, is an indispensable tool in surface treatment. Plasma technology is used everywhere where quality, productivity, environmental sustainability, precision and flexibility is important. Surfaces are cleaned, activated and decontaminated at atmospheric pressure with the handy kINPen® IND. The device is particularly used for surface treatment of temperature-sensitive materials as, for instance, plastics.

Non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma jet (ntAPPJ)

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.

Ar metastable densities (³P₂) in the effluent of a filamentary atmospheric pressure plasma jet with humidified feed gas - dataset

The Ar(³P₂) metastable density in the effluent of the cold atmospheric pressure plasma jet kINPen-sci was investigated as a function of the feed gas humidity, the gas curtain composition, and the distance from the nozzle by means of laser atomic absorption spectroscopy. The data set comprises the axial distributions of the Ar metastables as a function of these parameters.
