DCSBD technology is capable to create a thin layer of macroscopically uniform high-density plasma. Already successfully conducted laboratory tests have revealed following unique properties of DCSBD plasma technology that clearly differentiate it from other plasma technologies:
The DCSBD plasma for flexible surfaces is used to treat flexible samples with dimensions ranging from several cm2 up to A4-size. The DCSBD plasma unit is located in close vicinity to a surface of treated flexible surface that can be fixed on a dielectric roller with a diameter of 14.8 cm and a circumference of 92.95 cm. CEPLANT use the system to prepare materials for various applications such as photovoltaics, light emitting devices and/or sensing systems on light-weight low-cost substrates.
The DCSBD plasma for roll to roll applications has been developed for large-area plasma pretreatment of flexible materials, such as PET, PEN and paper. Currently our R&D team use the system for plasma-fabrication of nanostructured functional coatings in flexible and printed electronics.
Recently developed state of the art large area roll-to-roll plasma generator for surface treatments using atmospheric-pressure diffuse coplanar surface barrier discharge (DCSBD) technology. Plasma generator uses 25 DCSBD plasma units operating at ambient air condition; each at power 500 W. The total power delivered into plasma is approx. 13 kW.
Plasma generator for A4-size rigid samples covers various applications related to functionalization of polymeric, glass and metals surfaces. Recently it is mainly used for treatment of wood, non-woven fabrics and application related to agriculture.
Plasma generator equipped with robotic arm is used whenever high precision of process is needed. It enables to study the effect of spatial distribution of the plasma and allows precision 0.02 mm. We use this system to treat silicon wafers and metals.
