Development of Cold Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Jets for Material Treatment, Thin Films Deposition and Biomedical Applications

Abstract

In the last decade the cold atmospheric pressure plasma jets or plumes attracted much attention and have been extensively studied because of innumerous technological applications. Their most important feature is the possibility of generating non-thermal plasma at high pressure, such as atmospheric pressure. The great advantage of the plasma jets is that they can be applied to large and or unregular surfaces and inside narrow spaces (as tooth canal, catheters etc.). Furthermore, the plasma jets can be used for localized treatments on living tissues (treatment of skin cancer, wounds, etc.). However due to the size and rigiditiy of the present plasma jet systems, there is a limitation for their medical applications especially in the case of applications involving treatment of internal organs of the human body. This research project proposes a novel method for production of cold plasma jet at the end of a flexible plastic tube with a length up to a few meters. Thus, the plasma jet is generated far from the high-voltage region and can easily be handled for treatment and sterilization of materials. Thus the aim of this proposal is firstly the development, characterization and optimization of a plasma jet system, which is produced at the end of long plastic tube. As an applications it is intended to treat different materials (polymers, alloys, fabrics, fibers etc.) with the remote plasma jet in order to improve their surface properties such as wettability, adhesion, surface roughness, etc. Besides, the plasma jet at the end of long tube will be tested as a sterilizing agent of biologically contaminated material. We intend to carry out experiments in vitro (bacterial cultures and biofilms) and in vivo (in laboratory animals). In the second place a system for deposition of thin polymers films using cold atmospheric pressure plasma jet will de developed.The produced films will be used as protective coatings and for improvment of surface properties, such as wettability, bio-compartibility, roughness etc. (AU)
