Our low-temperature plasmas research bridges physics, chemistry and biology focusing on plasma medicine, propulsion, manufacturing and thin-films.
From the development of cancer treatments to SP³ electrothermal plasma micro thrusters for rockets, we are working with global partners on some of the greatest advances of the 21st century.
Low-temperature plasmas explained
Low-temperature plasmas are strongly non-equilibrium systems generating an exotic physical and chemical environment through free electrons at low gas temperatures. This unique environment allows the treatment of temperature-sensitive materials with atomic and molecular precision. Plasma technologies underpin many high-end industries.
