Abstract:

This document is the final report on the research activities carried out under AFOSR Grant F49620-00-1-0168. It describes the research results and the various events, which took place during the period of this research program. The focus of our activities is the investigation of the properties of a large volume, non-thermal, atmospheric pressure plasma generated by the Resistive Barrier Discharge. The biological applications of this discharge have also been investigated. These include the study of the germicidal effects as well as the effects of the plasma on the biochemical pathways of bacteria.
