Human/mechanical powered plasma: Researchers help create the future

Low-temperature plasmas offer promise for applications in medicine, water purification, agriculture, pollutant removal, nanomaterial synthesis and more. Yet making these plasmas by conventional methods takes several thousand volts of electricity, says David Go, an aerospace and mechanical engineer at the¬†University of Notre Dame. That limits their use outside high-voltage power settings. In work supported by […]
