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.
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.
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.

The kINPen® MED is a member of the kINPen® family certified as a class IIa medical device. In medical practice, the kINPen® MED is primarily used for treating chronic wounds and pathogen-induced skin diseases. One of the key features allowing the certification as a medical device is the low gas temperature of typically 35...38 °C. A vast number of publications investigating the kINPen® MED is available, the section below presents only selected examples.
The device is commercially available from neoplas med GmbH.
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.
