"Real Time Characterization of Polymer Surface Modifications by an Atmospheric-Pressure Plasma Jet: Electrically Coupled versus Remote Mode"

by Andrew Knoll

Friday, October 31, 2014 -- 12:00 p.m.
Large Conference Room, 1207 Energy Research Facility

Advisor:  Professor Gottlieb Oehrlein

We distinguish two modes of APPJ operation depending on if the plume is coupled to the surface and charged species dominate versus remote treatments where reactive neutrals dominate.  We use a combination of in situ techniques such as ellipsometry with post treatment characterization to determine the interactions of this APP source with a model polymer film.
