About this book

This book presents some fundamental aspects of plasma technology that are important for beginners interested to start research in the area of plasma technology. These include the properties of plasma, methods of plasma generation and basic plasma diagnostic techniques. It also discusses several low cost plasma devices, including pulsed plasma sources such as plasma focus, pulsed capillary discharge, vacuum spark and exploding wire; as well as low temperature plasmas such as glow discharge and dielectric barrier discharge which the authors believe may have potential applications in industry. The treatments are experimental rather than theoretical, although some theoretical background is provided where appropriate. The principles of operation of these devices are also reviewed and discussed.

About the authors

Dr. Chiow San Wong received the Ph.D. degree in plasma physics from the University of Malaya (UM), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 1983. He is Professor of physics and has been the Leader of UM’s Plasma Technology Research Group since 1992. His research focuses on plasma physics and applications, particularly pulsed radiation sources and their applications, plasma systems for material processing and surface treatment, and atmospheric discharges. He has published more than 230 papers, with more than 130 in refereed journals. Prof. Wong has been a Fellow of the Malaysian Academy of Sciences since 2007. He was a Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung in 1987 and the President of the Asian African Association for Plasma Training from 2004 to 2012. In 2005, he was the recipient of the Malaysian Toray Science and Technology Award for his contribution in the development of plasma technology in Malaysia.
