Many papers and texts can be found on waveguide attenuators filled with magnetized (biased) or unmagnetized (unbiased) plasma layers; but there are no works on experimental verification and numericalExpand
Review of plasma-assisted reactions and potential applications for modification of metal—organic frameworks
Plasma catalysis is drawing increasing attention worldwide. Plasma is a partially ionized gas comprising electrons, ions, molecules, radicals, and photons. Integration of catalysis and plasma canExpand
Plasma Pre-treatments to Improve the Weather Resistance of Polyurethane Coatings on Black Spruce Wood
We hypothesize that plasma treatments that increase the adhesion and penetration of transparent water, and solvent-borne polyurethane coatings into black spruce wood will improve the performance ofExpand
Plasma Sources for Biomedical Applications
This chapter introduces the reader to the physical characteristics of plasma in general and subsequently focuses on cold atmospheric plasma (CAP). This technological branch is especially importantExpand
