    Hard Ag/a-C:H nanocomposite coatings are deposit by combination of Gas aggregation source of nanoparticles with PECVD process. Etching of nanocomposites by different type of plasmas are studying in order to increase Ag surface concentration. It shows that oxygen etching increases Ag surface concentration up to 12 at .% which leads to the enhancement of antibacterial efficacy.

    This figure depicts the experimental setup of tooth bleaching with Helium atmospheric plasma jet and saline. The bleaching efficacy and safety is evaluated with International Commission on Illumination L*a*b* system, scanning electron microscopy image, temperature measurement, and ozone measurement. The bleaching mechanism is discussed with OH radical and H2O2 measurement.

    This figure depicts the experimental setup of porous zinc oxide synthesis and estimated band alignment of synthesized Zinc oxide. A zinc wire, atmospheric oxygen, and helium gas flow have been used for synthesis process. Band alignment estimation is done by combining results of kelvin prob measurement, X-raym photoelectron spectroscopy, and UV absorption spectroscopy.
