Description

Nonequilibrium atmospheric pressure plasma jets (N-APPJs) generate plasma in open space rather than in a confined chamber and can be utilized for applications in medicine. This book provides a complete introduction to this fast-emerging field, from the fundamental physics, to experimental approaches, to plasma and reactive species diagnostics. It provides an overview of the development of a wide range of plasma jet devices and their fundamental mechanisms. The book concludes with a discussion of the exciting application of plasmas for cancer treatment.

The book

  • provides details on experimental methods including expert tips and caveats.
  • covers novel devices driven by various power sources and the impact of operating conditions on concentrations and fluxes of the reactive species.
  • discusses the latest advances including theory, modeling, and simulation approaches.
  • gives an introduction, overview and details on state of the art diagnostics of small scale high gradient atmospheric pressure plasmas.
  • covers the use of N-APPJs for cancer applications, including discussion of destruction of cancer cells, mechanisms of action, and selectivity studies.

XinPei Lu is a Chair Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Huazhong University of Science and Technology. 

Stephan Reuter is currently Visiting Professor at Université Paris-Saclay. In a recent Alexander von Humboldt research fellowship at Princeton University, he performed ultrafast laser spectroscopy on cold plasmas.

Mounir Laroussi is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and director of the Plasma Engineering and Medicine Institute at Old Dominion University. He is a Fellow of IEEE and recipient of an IEEE Merit Award.

DaWei Liu is Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Huazhong University of Science and Technology.
