  journal={IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science},
The research and development of plasma sources, which can be used for therapeutic applications in the new and emerging field of plasma medicine, has gained more and more interest during recent years. These applications require cold nonthermal plasmas operating at atmospheric pressure. Due to the fact that, in general, plasma on or in the human body is a challenge both for medicine and plasma physics, basic research combining experimental physical and biological investigation and modeling is… CONTINUE READING
