This book presents some fundamental aspects of plasma technology

that are important for beginners interested to start research in the area of

plasma technology. These include the properties of plasma, methods of plasma

generation and basic plasma diagnostic techniques. It also discusses several

low cost plasma devices, including pulsed plasma sources such as plasma focus,

pulsed capillary discharge, vacuum spark and exploding wire; as well as low

temperature plasmas such as glow discharge and dielectric barrier discharge

which the authors believe may have potential applications in industry. The

treatments are experimental rather than theoretical, although some theoretical

background is provided where appropriate. The principles of operation of these

devices are also reviewed and discussed.
