APPJ modification techniques could be used to improve the electrical and optical properties of oxide films grown by other methods.
This recent application of APPJ shows promise for applying this treatment method in the use of pollution control.
Despite the relatively simple design of APPJ systems, they have been effective in the deposition of coatings, surface treatments, and biomedical applications.
In this article, the latest developments in the design and applications of APPJs are reviewed.
The purpose of this review on APPJs is to provide an overview of the recent applications of the APPJs.
Axial-type APPJs can also be used with RF, LF, or a microwave power supply (16-20) without significant changes in the construction.
DBD is widely used in APPJs for various applications.
It was shown that APPJs can be very effective for materials processing and suitable for materials sensitive to thermal damage.
Because most APPJs use a pulsed power supply, investigating the effect of this parameter on the working process is important.
Although most applications of APPJs have involved the deposition of oxides, the use of this method for preparation of a metal coating has also been reported.
88) APPJs have been found to be highly effective against infected and colonized wounds as well as various superficial skin infections (63) Patients with infected chronic wounds suffered no pain during treatment with plasma jets, and no complications were reported after the treatment (64)
Applying APPJs that use different working gases such as helium, argon, and nitrogen to cancer cells (81) revealed their utility in enhancing the intercellular ROS concentrations and thus inducing oxidative stress.
