Hygiene and Health
The research division plasmas for Hygiene and Health develops novel applications for the life sciences and medical technology with its two main research programmes Plasma Medicine and Plasma Surface Modification. Different plasma-based processes are used, for example, to improve medical devices, for new forms of therapy or biosensory surfaces. In addition to basic research, for example on plasma redox effects and plasma liquid effects, targeted research is being conducted on processes for the surface treatment of metal, ceramic, glass and plastic surfaces. The application is not limited to the medical sector, but is also possible in other industries such as automotive engineering, microelectronics, toolmaking, aerospace or optics.
