Technical plasmas and their use in the IP4Plasma project

Both hot (expert term: thermal) and cold (expert term: non-thermal) plasmas can also be generated artificially under low as well as ambient pressure conditions for purposes such as the generation of energy in fusion reactors, the generation of light in plasma displays and energy saving lamps, generation of hot arcs used for welding and cutting, chemical analysis of materials using mass spectroscopy, in spacecraft propulsion using ion engines and for the ozone (antibacterial agent) production and treatment of surfaces of materials.
