Paper Abstract

A battery-operated, atmospheric-pressure, micro-diameter (and nano-volume) microplasma on a hybrid, quartz-polymer (e.g., Teflon®) chip with area the size of a small postage stamp is described. Rapid prototyping of the microplasma device; some fundamental aspects (e.g., excitation temperatures), and characterization of background spectral emission using a portable, fiber-optic, CCD-based spectrometer are discussed in some detail.
