Plasma sheets and cylinders generated from aluminum wire fabric

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Low-temperature nonequilibrium plasma has been produced within the microcavities of a single sheet of aluminum wire fabric. The fabric is composed of two sets of interwoven, orthogonally oriented Al wires and each of the sets serves as an electrode for the array of dielectric barrier devices. Carefully controlled anodization of the fabric electrically and chemically isolates the two sets of wires from each other with a thin barrier of nanoporous aluminum oxide. The resulting material is flexible, and cylindrical microcavity plasma lamps operating in Ne have been demonstrated.
