Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


An array of three fan-shaped plasma torches is designed to be a source of atomic oxygen flux for biological decontamination applications. A narrowband-filtered CCD camera is used to record the intensities of 777.4-nm emissions from the torches and reveal the lateral distribution of the atomic oxygen flux produced in the plasma effluent of the torches.
