atmospheric pressure plasma jet, plasmas and liquids, reactive species, optical diagnostics


In this work, the interaction of atmospheric pressure plasmas with liquids is investigated. On the example
of hydrogen peroxide, generation and transport mechanisms are studied from the plasma to the gas- and
liquid phase. Interaction with the ambient surroundings is investigated and effects of nitrogen and oxygen
species on the plasma dynamics a well as on the reactive species generation in the liquid phase are
