Inquiry Base Experiment: The Effect of Plasma on Glass Surface Properties

Lindsey Kabot, Tanner Worden, Ashley Matsushita, Ryan Hernandez, Nina Abramzon


In this paper we present an experiment for the undergraduate plasma processing course. Students were exposed to a laboratory experience that very closely resembles real-life research by performing surface modification experiments using gas discharge plasma. This experiment demonstrates to students the effect of plasma on surface properties.
