Abstract

Dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) for therapeutic application in dermatology is characterized using optical emission spectroscopy, current-voltage measurements, microphotography, and plasma chemical simulation. Plasma parameters like electron distribution function, electron density, gas temperature, and ignition voltage and discharge current are determined. Material and geometry of opposite electrode, and the inter-electrode distance influence plasma conditions.
