Brief presentation of the institution

Tel AvivUniversity (TAU) - Israel's largest and most comprehensive institution of higher learning - is home to over 30,000 students studying in nine faculties and over 125 schools and departments across the spectrum of sciences, humanities and the arts. The mission of the Electrical Discharge and Plasma Laboratory (EDPL) is to investigate the basic physics of electrical discharges and plasmas, and to develop technological applications for these phenomena. The laboratory carries out its mission through a combination of theoretical and experimental investigations.

Main Plasma with liquids related topics

 The pulsed arc submerged in liquids are used for:
1. Synthesis of nanoparticles
2. Decomposition of organic polutions in water

Main Plasma with liquids related research techniques and equipment

EDPL is equipped with 5 set-ups for studying pulsed arcs in air and in fluids, as well as 5 d.c. vacuum arc set-ups and several microwave discharge set-ups. The lab is also equipped with various electronic and optical diagnostics for studying discharges and plasmas, including a 0.5 m monochrometer and a compact spectroscope (EPP2000-UV), for spectroscopic measurements. It has its own workshop for the construction of small apparatus, and access to the workshops of the Faculties of Engineering and Exact Sciences for larger projects. UV-visible, Raman spectrometry (Nanocenter), HPLC-MS diagnostic of treated liquids (Hydrochemistry Laboratory at Tel Aviv University). Analysis of obtained sediments by XRD, XPS, SEM, TEM , Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) - Wolfson Applied MaterialsResearchCenter.
