A group of Chinese and Australian scientists have developed a handheld, battery-powered plasma-producing device that can rid skin of bacteria in an instant. The device could be used in ambulance emergency calls, natural disaster sites, military combat operations and many other instances where treatment is required in remote locations. The plasma flashlight, presented today, 5 April, in IOP Publishing's Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics is driven by a 12 V battery and doesn't require...

Researchers have used plasma — similar to the form created in neon signs, fluorescent tubes and TV displays — to create water that stays significantly antibacterial and can be used as a disinfectant for at least seven days after becoming plasma-active. Their study, published today, 4 November 2011, in IOP Publishing's Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics, reports on the exposure of water to the cocktail of compounds contained in plasma which subsequently cause it to stay...

Fire thought of as the quintessential human invention. Now scientists have found that emerging, more energy efficient lighting technologies could be the key to a better quality of life. New research published today, Thursday, 19 August, in a special issue of IOP Publishing's Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics shows that solid-state lighting (SSL), a new technology based on semiconductor light-emitting diodes (LEDs), has the potential to increase our consumption of light and therefore our...
