Développement d’une méthode digitale d’activation de surface et déposition du matériel par plasma.
Non-thermal micro plasmas at atmospheric pressure have gained significant importance in a wide area of technological applications over the past 20 years.
For better surface adhesion and to achieve high quality of the final printed and coated multi-material shapes and devices, a high-resolution multi-nozzle plasma jet array is needed, which can digitally apply a micro plasma surface treatment.
The innovation resides in the combination of DC and RF signals to create and maintain the plasma. The ignition is made “on-demand”.
The main objective of the project is the development of a plasma array in which each single plasma cell can be ignited individually at atmospheric pressure following an arbitrary request of the final user.
