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.

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.

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.

Ion Wind DBD

The Ion Wind DBD uses a flat plasma electrode to create a surface dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) in the room air flowing over it. An additional “extraction” electrode is arranged in parallel to form a rectangular ventilation duct. The extraction electrode is charged, so that an additional unipolar electric field through the ventilation duct is created. This drags the ions of one polarity (either positive or negative) generated by the surface DBD in the direction of the extraction electrode.

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.

Hairline plasma jet (hairlINePlasma)

The hairline plasma jet (hairlINePlasma) is a cold atmospheric pressure plasma source mainly for biological and medical applications. hairlINePlasma uses the physical effect of negative dc corona discharges and produces a nanosecond self-pulsed microplasma with a very thin plasma filament. The Plasma filament has a diameter of about 30 µm and a length of up to 3 cm. Due to this geometrical features, hairlINePlasma is particularly suitable for the treatment of microscopic cavities and the localized functionalization of conductive surfaces.

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.

Influence of surface parameters on dielectric-barrier discharges in argon at subatmospheric pressure - dataset

The provided data describe the discharge current in DBD obtained by fluid modelling using different values of for the secondary electron emission coefficient γ and and the relative permittivity of the dielectric barrier εr in comparison with the measured current at a pressure of 100 mbar and an applied voltage amplitude of 1.8 kV. Furthermore, the dissipated power obtained by model calculations for different values of γ and εr together with the measured power in dependence on the pressure is given.
