A schematic diagram of the microwave atmospheric pressure non-equilibrium plasma system (APNEP) is shown in Figure 1, the arrangement displayed allows treatment of the aluminium surface outside the microwave cavity with a plasma jet.
A further consequence of both oxygen plasma treatment, after initial chamber evacuation, and APNEP treatment with nitrogen is thickening of the alumina film present on the treated surface.
Finally, the APNEP surface achieves relatively low contact angles and increased wettability compared with the as-received or electropolished surfaces.
