Researchers at Kanto Gakuin University Report New Data on Photopolymers (Fundamentals and Applications of Solution Plasma)

September 9, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Data detailed on Photopolymers have been presented. According to news originating from Kanagawa, Japan, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "Liquid-phase plasma is not well known compared with gas-phase plasma. We name the liquid-phase plasma 'solution plasma' because of the generation of different plasmas by choosing the combinations of solvents and solutes in solutions."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Kanto Gakuin University, "We can generate a glow discharge with a pulsed power generator by controlling several parameters for the ignition of the discharge. It is important to generate the glow discharge in solutions, which realizes the formation of a new reaction field at almost room temperature. We measured the basic physical and chemical properties of solution plasma by time-resolved optical spectroscopy and coherent ant-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS)."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The solution plasma is applicable to nanomaterials synthesis, surface modifications, water treatment, sterilization, decomposition of cellulose and toxic compounds, and so far."
