Brief presentation of the institution

Faculty of Physics is the high education and scientific institution that consists of the Department of Physics and the Department of Meteorology.
The undergraduate studies (eight semesters; four school years) are organized in four study groups, graduate and postgraduate studies and research. Teaching and scientific research are conducted in eleven sub-departments while students experimental exercises are carried out in twenty nine laboratories. Scientific research and doctoral studies include theoretical and experimental work on different fields of physics including non-thermal and thermal plasmas. Faculty of Physics has internationally recognized groups with a long tradition in plasma spectroscopy. 

Main Plasma with liquids related topics

Development of plasma-liquid systems based on dielectric barrier discharge (DBD): water falling film DBD reactor and plasma jets. 

     Diagnostics of water falling film DBD and helium plasma jet interacting with liquid:

     - Electrical measurements and emission spectroscopy: analyses of influence of liquid on electrical characteristics of the discharge and  excited species in emission spectra.

     - Study of the active chemical species formation in liquid phase 

     - Study of the discharge products in the gaseous phase with and without liquid (FTIR, absorption spectroscopy, gas  analyzer)

Study of helium DBD plasma jet- a significant plasma source for biomedical applications and surface treatment:

    - Electrical measurements

    - Spectroscopic measurement of electric field

    - Spatial distribution and time development of some excited species 

 Applications of water falling film DBD in water treatment, advanced oxidation processes, plasma- catalytic processes and biomedicine:

     - Degradation of phenols, chlorophenols, reactive textile dyes,  pesticides, pharmaceutical compounds and surfactants 

     - Removal of arsenic from potable water

     - Inactivation of microorganisms in liquids

     - Exhaust gas treatment with plasma-assisted scrubbing  

Main Plasma with liquids related research techniques and equipment

- Spectroscopic measurement of electric field based on Stark polarization spectroscopy

- Emission spectroscopy

- Absorbtion spectroscopy

- Electrical measurements

- Fourir Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (gas, liquid and solid analysis)

- Gas Chromatography with mass spectrometry

- liquid analysis (conductivity and pH measurements, spectrophotometric measurements of chemical species)

- Various plasma sources for treatment of liquids and gases

- High voltage power supply (AC and pulsed)

Brief information on available facilities related to Plasma with liquids

Laboratory for Physics and Technology of Plasma is equiped for reserch on electrical discharges with liquids with experienced scientific staff in the field of non-thermal plasmas.

Main experimantal facilities:

-High-resolution spectrometers with detectors (iCCDs and PMTs)

-FTIR spectrometer for gas, liquids and solid analysis

-Gas Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry and FID

-Gas analyzer

-Equipment for measurement of high voltages, up to ns time resolution (osciloscopes, high-voltage probes)
