This work involves the design, construction and testing of a novel in-line plasma treatment source. The possible applications are numerous including bacterial and viral inactivation. Surface treatments and food processing.

In the generation of confined stable Plasmas, considerable engineering physics challenges exist, typically chemically reactive environments, high voltage electric fields and non-trivial thermal and gas dynamics.

Previous research has identified the need for physicists to combine the use of experimental diagnostics with modern modelling tools to characterize the behaviour of the systems and overcome the challenges outlined above.
