In the research group PLASMANT we are studying plasma and plasma-surface interactions by means of computer modelling and experiments, for various applications, i.e.:
- CO2 conversion and N2 fixation into value-added chemicals and fuels
- plasma medicine
- microelectronics and nanotechnology
- analytical chemistry.
The aim is to obtain better insights in the underlying mechanisms, in order to improve the applications.
Our experiments focus on gas conversion and cancer treatment (the latter in collaboration with CORE and PPES). We have several types of plasma reactors for gas conversion (CO2, CH4, N2) into value-added chemicals, and several plasma sources for cancer treatment.
Annemie Bogaerts has an ERC Synergy Grant “SCOPE”, together with G. Centi, V. Hessel and E. Rebrov: See website ERC Synergy SCOPE
Furthermore, we also work on methodology development.
