Diagnostic based modeling (DBM)

Under atmospheric pressure conditions plasma diagnostics are challenging. A new technique for measuring absolute atomic oxygen species is developed. Diagnostic based modeling combines relatively simple experimental measurements with numerical simulations. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been identified as important in plasma applications, in particular bio-medical applications.
