New plasma device to treat hair loss

New plasma device to treat hair loss

Scientists at the HAWK in Göttingen, Germany developed a new brush-like plasma device for chemical-free treatment of the scalp to promote hair growth. The small device is easy to handle and can significantly enhance microcirculation as well as oxygen saturation, which are key parameters for stimulating hair growth.

Measuring head for plasma-aided material analysis

Measuring head for plasma-aided material analysis

Presented here is a novel measuring head for non-destructive material testing that works without a counter electrode at the sample due to clever electrode placing and reduced plasma energy due to its specific plasmajet layout. Thus allowing non-destructive analysis of virtually all material surfaces and shapes.

Hybrid Plasma-Laser Micro-Structuring

Hybrid Plasma-Laser Micro-Structuring

Unique nano-seals allow for forgery-proof object identification. Due to a combination of ion irradiation and simultaneous co-deposition of metal atoms a unique surface pattern is created. Its manufacturing process and size of a few square micrometers make it impossible to be reproduced, thus creating a forgery-proof identifier.

Flexible plasma electrode design for effective treatment of irregular surfaces

Flexible plasma electrode design for effective treatment of irregular surfaces

Surface activation or cleaning by cold plasma treatment is getting more and more attention. Current plasma based solutions have mostly fixed electrodes, which are only suited for planar surfaces. Scientists at the HAWK developed a plasma device with flexible electrodes, which allow treatment of irregular surfaces.

Plasma device for tapes and other flexible materials

Plasma device for tapes and other flexible materials

Surface activation or cleaning by cold plasma is getting more and more attention. Current plasma-based solutions for flexible materials however lack efficiency or are technically too complex and error-prone. Scientists at the HAWK developed a plasma roller device for effective and fast plasma treatment of flexible materials.

Plasma cushion for treating objects

Plasma cushion for treating objects

Device and method of treating objects & bulk materials with a physical plasma cushion at atmospheric pressure. The plasma passes from the discharge chamber to the treatment chamber through a sparger plate comprising a multitude of holes, producing a plasma cushion, which supports & slides/pushes the objects while treating them.

LICE ERASER — reliably killing of head-lice and their nits

LICE ERASER — reliably killing of head-lice and their nits

The LICE-ERASER kills the head-lice and their nits reliably and without any side effects. To use, the LICE-ERASER has to be moved through the hair like a hair-brush. The LICE-ERASER produces a cold plasma generated between the comb tooths, which kills the head-lice and their nits. This procedure is completely free of pain, the user will not feel anything.

New plasma device for chemical-free cleaning and sanitizing of textiles

New plasma device for chemical-free cleaning and sanitizing of textiles

Scientists at the HAWK in Göttingen, Germany developed a new plasma device for chemical-free cleaning and sanitizing of textiles or clothes. In addition, odors can also be greatly reduced or eliminated. The device consists of two rollers coated with a flexible dielectric material, which serve as electrodes for plasma treatment.
