Abstract: 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…
