Atmospheric pressure non-equilibrium plasma jets (APNPJs) generate plasma in open space rather than in a confined discharge gap and can be utilized for applications in medicine. This book provides a complete introduction to this fast-emerging field, from the fundamental physics to experimental approaches and reactive species diagnostics. It gives an overview of development of a wide range of plasma jet devices, including plasma bullets, and discusses in detail the exciting application of this technology for cancer treatment.
XinPei Lu received his PhD in electrical engineering from the HuaZhong University of Science and Technology, China. In 2007, he joined HuaZhong University of Science and Technology, where he is now a Chair Professor (ChangJiang Scholar) with the College of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He is a Senior Member of IEEE. His research interests include low-temperature plasma sources and their biomedical applications, modeling of low-temperature plasmas, and plasma diagnostics.
Stephan Reuter is a plasma physicist and head of a research group focusing on cold atmospheric pressure plasmas interacting with liquids. He has won several awards and scholarships, among them the Young Researcher in Science Scholarship of the "Deutsche Schering Stiftung". His key expertise is in non-equilibrium plasma diagnostics and diagnostics assisted by modelling.
Mounir Laroussi from Old Dominion University is one of the pioneers who discovered the plasma bullet phenomena in atmospheric pressure plasma jets and one of the founders of the field of plasma medicine. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in Electrical Engineering. Dr. Laroussi is a Fellow of IEEE and is the recipient of the 2012 IEEE Merit Award.
