Injecting nanosized particles in a D.C. plasma jet would require, to give them a high enough momentum, a huge carrier gas flowrate, which would drastically perturb the plasma jet. To overcome this problem a suspension of these particles is mechanically injected within the plasma jet. The high momentum of the latter tears the liquid jet in tiny droplets (1-3 Km) which evaporate in a few microseconds. This scenario has been checked by emission spectroscopy of the plasma jet and simple calculations. The agglomer…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
