Various basic technologies for the generation of cold atmospheric plasma were developed and patented by the Max Planck Society and subsequently at terraplasma GmbH.
An important point is that these basic technologies generate different plasmas which can be employed across various areas of application.
Cold atmospheric plasma produces a reactive mixture of electrons, ions, excited atoms and molecules, reactive species (such as O3, NO, NO2, etc.), UV radiation and heat. These plasma components – individually – have specific qualities for certain applications, e.g. short-lived electrons can effectively destroy malodour, whereas a suitable mix of reactive plasma components can be used for disinfection or sterilization by inactivating microorganisms.
Our basic technologies – Magnetically Oriented Plasma Technology (MOPS), Surface Micro Discharge Technology (SMD), Microwave Plasma Technology (MWP) and Venturiplasma Technology (Venturi) – can be adapted in an optimum way to reach your application targets.
