Project description

It is very important to understand physical and chemical mechanisms underlying the beneficial
interactions of plasma with polyester surface since porous material surfaces processed by nonthermal
plasma can provide various biomedical applications. We propose experimental and numerical
research on the complex interactions between plasma and the surface, contributing to the knowledge
of how plasma jet parameters impact surface modification processing.
