Brief presentation of the institution

Faculty of Chemistry, Brno University of Technology (FCH BUT) is a reputable academic institution in the Czech Republic specializing in chemical engineering. It consists of four departments with 200 employees including academic, research, technical and administrative staff. The faculty is a member of many bilateral and multilateral international projects and an organiser of several national and international conferences, meetings, commercial presentations as well as show actions for public.

Main Plasma with liquids related topics

- Elementary physical and chemical processes initiated by non-equilibrium plasma of various electrical discharges in liquids (water and organic solutions)

- Plasma diagnostics (optical emission spectroscopy, electric measurements, ICCD imaging)

- Development of high voltage sources (DC, high frequency) and discharge reactors based mainly on the so-called pin-hole configuration (diaphragm or capillary geometry) and small-scaled plasma jets for micro-applications

- Applications of underwater discharges in water treatment, plasma sterilisations and surface treatment of solid materials and nanoparticles
