Welcome to the presentation website of the

Plasma Processes, Materials and Surfaces Group
from the

National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics
of Bucharest, Romania!



Main objectives:

Fundamental and applicative research on gas discharges and plasma processes;

Process development for new materials, functional surfaces and thin films;

Plasma sources and devices for utilization in engineering, nanotechnology, environment, biology and medicine.


Reasearch topics:

1. Plasma Sources

- atmospheric pressure sources: non-thermal (cold) plasma jets (plasma torch, planar and axial DBD jets)

- low pressure sources: radiofrequency expanding plasma jets, Magnetron Sputtering Discharges (MS), sources for PECVD processing, Inside-Gap Plasma Generators


2. Plasma Synthesis and Treatment of Nanomaterials

- carbon nanowalls (CNW), carbon nanofibers (CNF)

- nanoparticles (carbon, tungsten, iron)

- powder treatment in fluidizing reactors


3. Plasma Processing: Materials and Fusion Technology

- process development: magnetron sputtering deposition, PECVD deposition, combined deposition MS/PECVD

- wall cleaning and thin film deposition (carbon, plasma polymers, metal/carbon composites)

- surface modification at low and atmospheric pressure (polymers, nuclear track membranes, semiconductors)

- plasmas in liquids for chemical decomposition, particles synthesis, biological decontamination


4. Processes in Plasma and their Diagnostics

- Optical Emission Spectroscopy, Mass Spectrometry, Electrical probes application during deposition, cleaning, surface modification
