Nanoscience with non-equilibrium plasmas at atmospheric pressure

Journal of Physics D 44 (2011) 333

This review devoted to nanoscience with atmospheric-pressure plasmas shows how nanomaterials are synthesized locally using three main ways: localized plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition, nanoparticles and templates. On the other hand, self-organization of nano-objects on surfaces is driven by electric fields, stress and high temperatures. We show that the specificities of plasmas at high pressures, such as their small size, their self-organization or their filamentation, have been little exploited in the synthesis of nanomaterials. Finally, perspectives in the field are given.
