What is Cold Atmospheric Plasma (CAP)?
Cold atmospheric plasmas (CAP) are partially ionized gases, that means only one particle out of 109 is ionized. The advantage of cold atmospheric plasmas is that they are “cold”, within the meaning that they operate under room temperature and can be produced at atmospheric pressure on Earth.
Generally, cold atmospheric plasma generates a reactive mix of electrons, ions, excited atoms and molecules, reactive species (e.g. O3, NO, NO2, etc.), UV radiation and heat.
