Brief presentation of the institution

 State Research Centre of Russian Federation the Troitsk Institute for Innovation and Fusion Research (TRINITI)  deals with  the research and various applications of both hot- and low-temperature plasmas like plasma of TOKAMAK and cold plasma of CO2 lasers. The research includes both experimental and theoretical studies of gas discharges in different media and plasma generated by these discharges.The SRC RF TRINITI is an internationally recognized research institute, has about  of 1000 emploees (among them 54 Dr Sci and 168 PhD) and it is divided into 6 large scientific divisions.   

Main Plasma with liquids related topics

- Elementary chemical and physical phenomena induced by non-equilibrium plasma of electrical discharges in liquid (mainly water) and in gas-liquid environments (discharge plasma diagnostics, analyses of chemical products of plasma in liquid and gaseous phase, interactions of plasma with the condensed liquid and at gas/liquid interfaces)

- Development of high voltage discharge (pulsed, AC and DC) generators of various design and electrode geometry producing plasma directly in the liquid, in the gas phase in contact with the liquid or in both phases simultaneously

 - Chemical and biological effects of electrical discharge plasma in water and gas/liquid environments and their potential environmental, biological, chemical applications (inactivation of microorganisms in water, organic synthesis, etc.)-

Main Plasma with liquids related research techniques and equipment

1) Various lab-scale high-voltage power generators (steady-state voltage, mono-pulsed and pulsed-periodical voltage of both positive and negative polarities and sinusoidal  voltage with variable amplitude up to 30 kV, duration and frequency up to 100 kHz ) for excitation of electrical discharges in/above liquid.

2) High-voltage measurement and fast time resolved systems for data acquisition and processing.

3) Fast image camera for registration of spatial-temporal evolution of gas discharge structure in/above liquid

4) Multi-channel emission UV/VIS spectroscopy.

5) IR absorption spectroscopy of liquids

6) Microbiological facilities for cultivation and analysis of bacteria and bio-films.

Brief information on available facilities related to Plasma with liquids

Various discharge reactors for generation of plasma in liquid and in gas/liquid environments:

a) DC pin-plane corona in air-water droplets mixture;

b) DC discharge in water with bubbles;

c) AC streamer discharge above water under its strong mechanical vibration;

d) pulsed discharge above foam.
