Title:Microplasma jet array
Author(s):Tong, Zikang

Subject(s):microplasma jet array
Abstract:A microplasma jet array is a device composed of a two-dimensional array of micro-scaled gas channels that ignites flowing gas species into plasma-state jets. These devices operate at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. The potential application for these devices is bacteria and biofilm inactivation and past literature reports have demonstrated success in doing so. The device implemented in this report differentiates from previous experimentation by utilizing a physical structure with potential for plasma breakdown with ambient air as the gas feedstock. This differentiation presents an advantage because the device can use natural and abundantly available gas as its feedstock. However, further testing must be performed to fully conclude this capability.
