Abstract : We have established a state-of-the-art plasma research facility which is capable of conducting various interdisciplinary research projects. We have been conducting research on the developed DC RBD plasma system, 13.56 MHz RF DBD plasma system, laser induced breakdown plasma system, plasma shadowgraphy system and optical emission spectroscopy diagnostics, two color laser interferometry diagnostics. We have completed the re-design and optimization of the portable plasma jets. We have made significant progress in testing and characterization and biological testing of the portable plasma jets and the research will be continued to make progress for the optimization changes done to the plasma jets.
