Plasmas in Liquids

  • Underwater streamer discharges
  • Single bubble breakdown experiments
  • Waste treatment and water purification
  • Pin-to-liquid glow discharge

RUPT is putting a strong research focus on plasmas in liquids and in contact with liquids. Current research themes include plasma generation and dynamics in bubbles, plasma-liquid interactions and radical production in connection to material and waste treatment applications.
