Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A pen-size low-temperature air-plasma torch is designed for dental applications. A narrow-band-filtered charge-coupled-device camera is used to record the 2-D distribution of the intensities of 777.4-nm emissions from the 5P state of atomic oxygen produced in the plasma effluent of the torch.
