The aim is to develop procedures for plasma processing of materials (plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition - PECVD, plasma polymerization, plasmachemical synthesis of nanomaterials, plasma treatment and reduction) enabling the preparation of advanced materials and surfaces with additional functionalities and applications in sensing, tissue engineering, tribology, optics, smart textiles, batteries etc. One of the objectives is the understanding of interaction of reactive plasmas with a solid surface using thin film and surface characterization methods, plasma diagnostics, process monitoring and simulations. Additionally, our goal is to further develop physical methods and software for the characterization of materials, namely for the characterization of optical and mechanical properties and scanning probe microscopy.

Plasma processing of materials, plasma diagnostics, process monitoring and simulations
We develop and investigate low and atmospheric pressure plasma processing of materials. The understanding of the processes and interaction of plasma with surfaces is achieved by plasma diagnostics, process monitoring and simulations of related phenomena (electromagnetic field, gas flow, heat transport, plasma).
In our numerical models, we focus exclusively on plasma devices which have direct material or biomedical applications. We simulate plasma in close-to-real geometries in relevant gas mixtures. This does, sometimes, pose a big challenge because the coupling of the plasma, the gas dynamics and mixing and the electromagnetic field is very strong. The numerical modelling is, always, complemented with plasma diagnostics in order to verify the validity of our models. The most interesting models that we have developed include:
Coupled model of gas dynamics and the electromagnetic field in a microwave plasma torch operating at the atmospheric pressure in an inhomogeneous argon/hydrogen mixture.
Gas dynamics model of gas flow and heat transfer in a radio-frequency jet for bioapplications.
A model of gas dynamics and precursor consumption in a dielectric barrier discharge with the aim of gas supply optimization.
Currently, our main focus lies on self-consistent modelling of atmospheric discharges with bioapplications.
Knowing the conditions in the plasma discharges, especially the gas and electron temperatures and the electron density) is absolutely crucial for transferring our plasma processes to different setups or for upscaling them. In addition, measurements of plasma properties are very useful for validation of the numerical models developed in our group. So far, we have employed the following techniques to characterize our discharges:
Optical emission spectroscopy for electron denisty and gastemperature measurements.
Thomson scattering for electron density and temperature measurements and Rayleigh scattering for gas temperature measurements (in collaboration with Technische UniversiteitEindhoven).
Laser schlieren deflectometry for gas temperature measurement.
Capacitively coupled radio frequency (RF) discharges
Cold RF plasma jet
Dielectric barrier discharges (DBD)
Microwave plasma torch
Microwave plasma torch is atmospheric pressure device that provides high temperature, electron and energy density. In applications it is most suitable for conversion and synthesizing processes where it can achieve full breakdown of the precursor molecules to active radicals. We have successfully utilized this device for synthesis of nanoparticles and nanotubes and also studied by diagnostic methods and modeling.
The glide arc or gliding arc is a type of a plasma discharge, where the arc channel is moving along slanted electrodes. When external forces (buoyancy, gas flow) act on the plasma channel, it is pushed from this optimal position. The discharge channel starts to glide and consecutively changes its properties from the ones nearly identical to a standard arc discharge at short channel lengths to a non-equilibrium plasma at longer channels. The non-equilibrium stage begins when the length of the plasma column exceeds its critical value and heat losses from the plasma begin to exceed the energy supplied by source. The maximum length of the glide arc channel is related to the supplied voltage. After the quenching of one discharge at maximum elongation a new discharge appears at minimal electrode distance and the whole evolution is repeated. Advantageous properties of the glide arc plasma can be used for various applications such as decontamination, methane transformation or CO2 dissociation.

Functional plasma polymer coatings
The plasma (co)polymerization is applied for a surface modification by coatings containing (bio)active groups (carboxyls, amines, ...). We develop plasmachemical processes that utilize non-toxic monomers. The coatings can be applied to different substrates because the processes take places at temperatures closed to the room temperature. The coatings are tested in sensors, for immobilization of biomolecules and for the modification of biodegradable electrospun polymer nanofibers aiming at the applications in tissue engineering.

Hard and hybrid (organic/inorganic) coatings
Organic/inorganic organosilicon coatings with tuned hybrid structure are deposited by PECVD from organosilicon monomers (e.g. hexamethyldisiloxane - HMDSO) in low pressure RF discharges, atmospheric pressure DBD and RF plasma jet. We develop and investigate hard coatings based on diamond like carbon (DLC) prepared by low pressure PECVD.

Metal oxide coatings and nanomaterials
Very thin films of TiO2, HfO2 and other oxides are prepared by atomic layer deposition (ALD) or plasma ALD. Additionally, we investigate the structure of TiO2-based ternary oxides prepared by PECVD. In MW torch, a fast synthesis of iron oxide (maghemite, hematite) nanoparticles and nanostructured coatings can be tuned to desired applications including in-flight coating of nanoparticles for a core-shell structure.

Carbon nanostructured materials and their functionalization
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene nanowalls are synthesized directly on the functional devices, e.g. sensors, using the MW plasma torch or by CVD using iron catalytic nanoparticles synthesized in the torch. Graphene is grown on copper foils by CVD. The CNTs or graphene are functionalized by plasmachemical method for enhanced sensing properties, imobilization of biomolecules, better dispersion in liquids (e.g. for spraying) or improved dispersion and covalent bonding in polymer matrixes (for composites). Plasmachemical modified carbon nanomaterials can find applications in smart textiles, multifunctional polymer composites, (bio)sensors, supercapacitors, batteries etc.

Modifications of working electrodes of electrochemical sensors using CNTs and plasma treatment
Enhanced adsorption properties of carbon nanomaterials make it possible to create novel gas sensors with improved performance. High surface area of porous CNTs and carbon nanofibers increase the response of the gas sensors. Unique and fast plasma-assisted technique of making of the gas sensors based on carbon nanomaterials (carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers, graphene etc.) was created to investigate and produce high quality devices. Advantages of the gas sensors based on carbon nanomaterials:
Excellent sensing properties allow to use the sensors at room temperature;
Low detection limit (e.g. lower than 10 ppm);
Possibility to engineer the sensing properties precisely;
Possibility to use the gas sensors for a wide range of industrial and toxic gases or gas mixtures (CO, CO2, CxHy, NH3, NO2 etc.).
Development of methods for the characterization of optical properties of materials
The optical characterization of thin films and surfaces is performed by the combination of ellipsometric and spectrophotometric measurements in the wide spectral range. We develop own software (newAD) for the solution of advanced and complex problems. The characterization provides information not only about the thickness and optical properties (refractive index and extinction coefficient) but also about non-uniformity, inhomogeneity, existence of interlayers, roughness, changes in chemical composition and electronic band structure.
Development of methods for the characterization of mechanical properties of materials
The advanced studies of mechanical properties of thin films and nanomaterials is carried out by instrumented micro/nanoindentation and nanoscratch tests. The complex analysis of relation between nanoindentation response and material structure is performed for thin films, multilayered and nanocomposite materials. Recently, the measurement in liquids for the samples with potential bioapplications and the measurements at the temperatures up to 800 oC are investigated.
