"Visible Plasma Clouds with an Externally Excited Spherical Porous Cavity Resonator"

by Paul A. Bernhardt, Stanley J. Briczinski, Sang Min Han, Arne W. Fliflet, Caroline E. Crockett, Carl L. Siefring, Steven H. Gold


A microwave driven resonator is as an electron/ion cloud generator for illumination and plasma source applications. A sustained porous cavity resonator (PCR) glow discharge is externally excited using a resonant frequency electromagnetic (EM) wave that excites large internal electric fields. The resonator with a Q of 300 amplifies the incident electric field by factors of about 100 causing a breakdown of the neutral gas inside the sphere. more...

"Plasma-Driven Water Assisted CO2 Methanation"

by W.F.L.M. (Wilfred) Hoeben, E.J.M. (Bert) van Heesch, F.J.C.M. (Frank) Beckers, W. (Willem) Boekhoven, and A.J.M. (Guus) Pemen


By the application of pulsed corona discharges in a carbon dioxide atmosphere over a water film, the formation of methane has been observed under mild reaction conditions, without the application of a dedicated catalyst. Methane is proposed to result from hydrogenation of carbon monoxide and possibly also carbon dioxide at the NiCr alloy high-voltage electrodes, the precursors being formed by plasma-induced decomposition of carbon dioxide and water. more...
