Abstract

The goal of this work is to get a space and time resolved characterization of a plasma process and to optimize radiation in the desired wavelength range for the development of a sterilization process for polyethylene terephthalate (PET)bottles. For that purpose optical emission spectroscopy (OES) and Langmuir probe diagnostics are performed.
