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.:

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.
