Integrated micro-plasmas in silicon operating in helium


Microplasma arrays operating in helium in a DC regime have been produced in silicon microreactors. Cathode boundary layer (CBL) type microdevices were elaborated using clean room facilities and semiconductor processing techniques. Ignition of the micro-discharge arrays having either 50 or 100 μm diameter cavities was studied. Two different structures… (More)
