    Abstract = {A cathode made of carbon nanofibers (CNFs) grown on a stainless steel mesh was used for the reduction of an oxidized form of the enzymatic cofactor nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) to enzymatically-active 1,4-NADH, i.e. for the electrochemical regeneration of 1,4-NADH. The CNF cathode was shown to enable fast electrochemical NAD+ reduction kinetics and high NAD+ conversion relative to the glassy carbon and stainless steel mesh cathodes alone. The CNF cathode was also found to be highly selective, yielding a 99.3 $\pm$ 0.6 % pure 1,4-NADH product. As such, the CNF cathode is a good candidate for the electrochemical regeneration of 1,4-NADH in biochemical reactors and biosensors.},

    Abstract = {We present a new synchrotron X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy strategy for surface chemical analysis of materials. Our approach is based on the acquisition of photoelectron spectra at constant kinetic energies with the help of a tunable synchrotron X-radiation source. This ensures both constant and tunable information depth for all elements in a very thin organic layer. Many of the problems known to XPS depth profiling using laboratory equipment are thereby avoided. Using our methodology, the 95% information depth, z(95%), can be tuned down to about 0.7 nm in organic materials. The upper limit in our study at the HE-SGM monochromator dipole magnet beamline at the synchrotron radiation source BESSY II is about 4.3 nm. Elemental quantification is achieved through relative sensitivity factors (RSF) specific to the measurement conditions, determined either with the help of calculated photoionization cross sections and inelastic mean free paths or experimentally. The potential of the technique is demonstrated for the in-depth analysis of plasma deposited nitrogen-rich organic thin films used in biomedical applications.},

    Abstract = {We investigated the ageing of amine-terminated self-assembled monolayers (amine-SAMs) on different silica substrates due to exposure to different ambient gases, pressures, and/or temperatures using time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) with principal component analysis and complementary methods of surface analysis as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and near edge X-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS). The goal of this study is to examine the durability of primary amine groups of amine-SAMs stored in a user laboratory prior to being used as supports for biomolecule immobilization and other applications. We prepared amine-SAMs on the native oxides of silicon wafers and glass slides using 3-aminopropyl triethoxysilane, by using optimized conditions such as anhydrous organic solvent and reaction time scale of hours to avoid multilayer growth. Selected commercial amine-SAM slides have been investigated, too. When the amine-SAMs are exposed to air, oxygen incorporation occurs, followed by formation of amide groups. The formation of oxygen species due to ageing was proved by ToF-SIMS, XPS, and NEXAFS findings such as CNO- secondary ion emission at m/z 42, observation of the N 1s HNC=O component peak at 400.2-400.3 eV in XPS, and, last but not least, by formation of a pi*(HNC=O) resonance at 401 eV in the N K-edge X-ray absorption spectrum. It is concluded that the used multi-method approach comprising complementary ToF-SIMS, XPS, and NEXAFS analyses is well suited for a thorough study of chemical aspects of ageing phenomena of amine-SAM surfaces.},

Angle-resolved XPS analysis suggests the presence of an excess top layer composed of unbound sulfur components combined With alkyl moieties. Further support for DMT attachment on Au is given by ToF-SIMS and FT-IR analysis. Carbon and oxygen K-edge NEXAFS spectra were interpreted by applying the building block model supported by comparison to data of 1-undecanethiol, poly(vinyl alcohol), and polyoxymethylene.

These films were investigated using angle-resolved and excitation energy resolved X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (ARXPS and ERXPS, respectively) in order to determine their sub-surface chemical profiles. These two techniques enable one to tune the "XPS 95%" information depth, z (95%), by varying either the angle or the excitation energy. Using a combination of both techniques, z (95%) can be varied continuously from 0.7 to 11 nm. The surface-near chemistry is investigated using both high-resolution C 1s spectra and elemental concentrations derived from elemental peak intensities. Results show that while laboratory XPS, and even ARXPS, suggest homogenous surface chemistries, the novel combination of ARXPS and ERXPS points to the existence of a compositional profile in the extreme outer surface layer. Our conclusions are supported by simulations using SESSA software.},

    @article{Petit_2011_655,
    Abstract = {Background: Recent evidence indicates that osteoarthritis (OA) may be a systemic disease since mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from OA patients express type X collagen, a marker of late stage chondrocyte hypertrophy (associated with endochondral ossification). We recently showed that the expression of type X collagen was suppressed when MSCs from OA patients were cultured on nitrogen (N)-rich plasma polymer layers, which we call "PPE:N" (N-doped plasma-polymerized ethylene, containing up to 36 atomic percentage (at.%) of N.
    Methods: In the present study, we examined the expression of type X collagen in fetal bovine growth plate chondrocytes (containing hypertrophic chondrocytes) cultured on PPE:N. We also studied the effect of PPE: N on the expression of matrix molecules such as type II collagen and aggrecan, as well as on proteases (matrix metalloproteinase-13 (MMP-13) and molecules implicated in cell division (cyclin B2). Two other culture surfaces, "hydrophilic" polystyrene (PS, regular culture dishes) and nitrogen-containing cation polystyrene (Primaria (R)), were also investigated for comparison.
    Results: Results showed that type X collagen mRNA levels were suppressed when cultured for 4 days on PPE: N, suggesting that type X collagen is regulated similarly in hypertrophic chondrocytes and in human MSCs from OA patients. However, the levels of type X collagen mRNA almost returned to control value after 20 days in culture on these surfaces. Culture on the various surfaces had no significant effects on type II collagen, aggrecan, MMP-13, and cyclin B2 mRNA levels.
    Conclusion: Hypertrophy is diminished by culturing growth plate chondrocytes on nitrogen-rich surfaces, a mechanism that is beneficial for MSC chondrogenesis. Furthermore, one major advantage of such "intelligent surfaces" over recombinant growth factors for tissue engineering and cartilage repair is potentially large cost-saving.},

    Abstract = {This article addresses the issue of metallic nanoparticle suspension (nanofluid) stabilization without the use of traditional surface-stabilizing agents such as surfactants. A dual plasma process for the single-step synthesis of a copper-ethylene glycol nanofluid is presented. The process uses a combination of low-pressure pulsed cathodic arc erosion to generate metal nanoparticles and in-flight radio-frequency glow discharge plasma functionalization for surface stabilization. The surface-stabilized nanoparticles are collected in situ by a falling film of ethylene glycol, the vapours of which are used for plasma functionalization. Little to no agglomeration is observed in the suspension, although this process is shown to occur when the produced suspensions are heated to temperatures well beyond the range of effectiveness of typical surfactants. This thermally induced agglomeration is demonstrated to be fully reversible. The stability of the suspension is confirmed by UV-Vis absorption spectrometry and electron microscopy. The particles synthesized are also shown to be re-dispersible in aqueous media. Though no heat transfer enhancement was observed due to the low nanoparticle loading, this study demonstrates for the first time that high temperature-stable nanofiuids containing metal nanoparticles can be synthesized in a single-step, without manipulation outside the controlled synthesis environment and without the post-addition of surfactants.

    Abstract = {An explanation for the enhancement of mass diffusion in nanofluids is presented using arguments based on dispersion in diluted fixed beds. Starting from the generalized Langevin equation, it is shown that the velocity field established around a Brownian nanoparticle is similar to the velocity field predicted by Brinkman equations leading to the analogy between dispersion in diluted fixed beds and dispersion in nanofluids. The proposed model predicts the order of magnitude of mass diffusion enhancement we observed recently (10-fold enhancement of rhodamine 6G mass diffusivity under the optimum conditions for a suspension of 10-nm alumina nanoparticles in deionized water). Contrarily to other Brownian motion-based models of diffusion in nanofluids, the proposed model samples the whole Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution of particle velocities rather than taking the non-representative root mean square velocity. The model also shows a strong dependence on the mass transfer Peclet number and, consequently, justifies the order of magnitude differences between the mass diffusivity and thermal conductivity enhancements reported in the literature.

Established selective chemical derivatisation procedures with trifluoroacetic anhydride (TFAA) and 4-trifluoromethyl benzaldehyde (TFBA) were used to determine alcohols and amines, respectively. Samples were analysed by energy-resolved XPS (ERXPS), enabling XPS depth resolution. We demonstrated that slightly aged plasma polymers prepared from allyl alcohol and allylamine present a homogeneous sub-surface chemistry within the range of the XPS information depth (approximate to 10 nm); this was clearly not the case for their acrylic acid counterparts. Furthermore, it is shown that standard derivatisation reactions result in homogeneous changes of the chemistry.},

    Abstract = {The application of non-thermal (cold) plasmas in medicine holds great promise. Non-thermal plasma devices have been used to directly ablate cells, induce apoptosis, facilitate cell transfection, lay down bioscafolds, and sterilize heat sensitive materials. Although the reactive species (RS) generated by the plasmas have been implicated in all of these processes, the biological mechanisms of action are poorly understood and the potential adverse effects largely unknown. In this work, we used a parallel electrode dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) and the atmospheric pressure glow discharge torch (APGD-t) to assess the possible negative effects of direct and indirect plasma treatment of mammalian cells and naked DNA. He La cells demonstrated an oxidative stress response when placed in direct contact with the plasma. No lipid peroxidation resulted from the application of the plasma to the cells. Both plasma sources were shown to be able to fragment naked DNA in PBS and to cause DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs). Sequencing of treated plasmid DNA introduced into electrocompetent bacterial cells showed no evidence of mutations. We conclude that the reactive nature of non-thermal plasmas can create oxidative stresses and may have unintended negative biological effects on cells.},

    Abstract = {Recent evidence indicates that a major drawback of current cartilage- and intervertebral disc (IVD) tissue engineering is that human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from patients with osteoarthritis rapidly express type X collagen (COL10A1), a marker of late stage chondrocyte hypertrophy associated with endochondral ossification. We recently demonstrated that COL10A1 expression was inhibited in MSCs from patients with osteoarthritis cultured on nitrogen-rich plasma polymerized (PPE:N) coatings. Here, we sought to understand the mechanisms of action of this effect by culturing MSCs on PPE:N surfaces in the presence of different inhibitors of kinases and cyclooxygenases. The effect of PPE:N surfaces on COL10A1 expression was found to be mimicked by the cyclooxygenase inhibitor NPPB, but not by daphnetin (an inhibitor of protein kinases) nor by genistein (an inhibitor of tyrosine kinases). COL10A1 expression was also suppressed by the specific cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1: SC-560) and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX: MK-866) inhibitors, but not by COX-2 (COX-2 inhibitor 2) and 12-LOX (baicalein) inhibitors. Finally, the incubation of MSCs on PPE:N surfaces inhibited the expression of COX-1 while 5-LOX was not expressed in these cells. Taken together, these results indicate that PPE:N surfaces inhibit COL10A1 expression via the suppression of COX-1. (C) 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Biomed Mater Res Part A: 94A: 744-750, 2010},

The reaction mechanism of these binary gas mixtures was investigated as a function of the wavelength, lambda, of two near-mono-chromatic VUV sources. Surface-near compositions of these "UV-PE:N" and "UV-PE:O" films were determined by X-ray photoelectron (XPS), and by Fourier transform (reflection-absorption) infrared (FTIR) spectroscopies. The two types of films were compared with plasma polymers deposited using low-pressure radiofrequency (r.f.) glow discharges in similar gas flow mixtures, "PPE:N" and 14 PPE:O". VUV-photochemistry appears to be superior to plasma-chemistry in its capability to produce nearly "mono-functional" organic thin films, ones that are rich in primary amines, -NH(2), and in carboxylic acid groups, -COOH, respectively.

The proposed method, based on Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy, enables the measurement of the diffusion coefficient for mass transport parallel to the millichannel wall. It determines the diffusion coefficient that provides the best fit of measured concentration profiles as a function of position and time, following a Heaviside-shaped initial concentration profile. A thorough description of the methodology is provided, including the mathematics of dye diffusion as well as fluorescence imaging considerations. In particular, we carefully develop the explicit relationship between acquired images by TIRF microscopy and actual dye concentration profiles inside the millichannel, which leads to the experimental determination of the dye diffusion coefficient. This is followed by the presentation of validation experiments with rhodamine 6G in deionized water. An average diffusion coefficient of 3.3 x 10(-10) m(2)/s is obtained, which is in good agreement with previously reported values. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.},

    Abstract = {A miniature nonthermal atmospheric plasma jet was used to deposit patterns of plasma polymers on standard Pyrex Petri dishes from an argon/acetylene gas mixture. The injection of the C(2)H(2) monomer through the powered capillary electrode ending in the nozzle section allowed a stable operation of the plasma jet and the successful deposition of plasma-polymer tracks approximate to 500 mu m wide. The line-averaged gas temperature was measured from the OH molecular band emission originating from the entrainment of air into the plasma jet. The gas temperature decreased monotonically from approximate to 440 K at the nozzle exit to approximate to 385 K at 5 mm downstream. The emission profiles of the C(2) (516 nm) band showed a peak approximate to 0.5 mm downstream the nozzle exit. The maximum emission for the CH band (431 nm) was obtained at the torch exit. An ATR-FTIR spectroscopy analysis of the deposited plasma-polymer films revealed the presence of C-H, O-H, and C = O functional groups. Mammalian cells grown on the argon/acetylene plasma-treated dishes showed migration and greater density compared to the control and dishes treated with an argon plasma jet. This preliminary study opens the door to the localized enhancement of cell coverage on various substrates (shape and material).},

When applied to adherent cell cultures, the APGD-t is capable of inducing temporary cell permeabilization. In this work, we evaluate the maximum radius of macromolecules able to enter into HeLa cells following a plasma treatment using a size exclusion approach with dextran molecules. We observe that this maximum radius is below 6.5 nm. We also show that no degradation occurs when a plasmid DNA suspended in culture media is plasma-treated at the operating conditions leading to cell permeabilization. The plasma-assisted DNA transfection of the HeLa cells with the hrGFP-II-1 plasmid using the APGD-t is demonstrated. Local transfection efficiencies obtained are as high as 35%.},

While the synthesis of monocrystalline thin films is well documented, common synthesis processes for titanium nitride nanoparticles yield only polycrystalline, spherically shaped powders. The process presented here allows for the synthesis of monocrystalline, cube-shaped nanoparticles by means of a dual plasma process. Pulsed electric arc erosion of a Ti cathode in a N-rich atmosphere produced by a radio-frequency discharge is used for the synthesis of the TiN nanoparticles. Electron microscopy revealed the cubic morphology of the synthesized powders and electron diffraction patterning confirmed the crystalline structure of the TiN nanoparticles.},

The p-MWNTs were strongly hydrophilic and showed no measurable hydrophobic recovery 2 weeks after treatment.

    Abstract = {A numerical investigation of the topographic field-enhancement factor beta for structures including individual vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs) and arrays of VACNT is presented. Some previously reported results for simple structures are reviewed first. Then, the extent of the zones of field enhancement and significant screening effects surrounding a given structure is discussed. The investigation with combined VACNT confirms the criterion that the spacing Delta x between identical CNT should be about twice their height to minimize screening effects. This statement is generalized to structures having different height ratios. The possibility of combining patterns of different height VACNT to minimize screening effects while allowing a larger surface density of such emitters is then investigated. The results show that height anisotropies in VACNT arrays can significantly reduce the field-emission current for a given applied field. A subsequent study that takes into account Joule heating and radiation losses during field emission demonstrates that, for height anisotropies larger than 5%, the VACNT tips reach temperatures above the onset temperature for selective field-assisted evaporation. This phenomenon occurs before the field-emission current from the nonideal films matches the targeted current value deduced from ideal VACNT arrays.},

    Abstract = {The Murphy and Good (M-G) theory for thermo-field emission [1] was used to calculate the emission current densities over the 300-5000K temperature range in order to bridge the gap with the simpler zero temperature version of the Fowler-Nordheim (F-N) equation. A comparison between the two sets of data reveals that the F-N equation as it is used in the analysis of F-N plots underestimates the true current density by a factor of 10(2) for all fields known to produce significant current in the case of carbon nanotubes arrays. We propose a new equation for field emission that is consistent with experimental current densities and that can still provide the field enhancement factor beta of field emitter arrays. This equation is obtained over the 300-3000K temperature range by fitting the temperature and field dependences of J(M-G) using a f (T(s), E(s), phi(0)) function using work function values phi(0) of 4.5 and 2.6 eV. Our complete parametric equation for the fitted M-G current density J(M-G)(Fit) is found to apply within a 1% error margin for f (Ts, Es, f0) functions computed for each value of phi(0) and for E(s) > 1.2 x 10(9) Vm(-1).},

Deposition kinetics and relevant surface characteristics of resulting plasma polymerised ethylene enriched with nitrogen, "PPE:N", coatings were investigated as a function of the gas mixture ratio, X=NH(3)(N(2))/C(2)H(4). Physico-chemical properties of the coatings were determined using a combination of complementary surface-sensitive techniques: for example, total nitrogen concentrations, [N], up to 40 at.% were measured by X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy, XPS, while those of primary amines, [-NH(2)], were determined by performing chemical derivatisation followed by XPS analyses. PPE:N films were further characterised by UV-VIS Ellipsometry, Near Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure Spectroscopy, IR Spectroscopy and by Contact Angle Goniometry measurements. The stability of the coatings was tested, both in terms of water solubility and of "ageing" in ambient atmosphere. For the latter, selected samples were stored in the laboratory for different durations, in order to assess possible changes in their chemical structures. (c) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.},

    Abstract = {Complications following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) are related to deficient healing around the stent-graft (SG). New generations of SG with surface properties that foster vascular repair could overcome this limitation. Our goal was to evaluate the potential of a new nitrogen-rich plasma-polymerised biomaterial, designated PPE:N, as an external coating for polyethylene terephtalate (PET)- or polytetrafluoro-ethylene (PTFE)-based SGs, to promote healing around the implant. Thin PPE:N coatings were deposited on PET and PTFE films. Then, adhesion, growth, migration and resistance to apoptosis of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and fibroblasts, as well as myofibroblast differentiation, were assessed in vitro. In another experimental group, chondroitin sulphate (CS), a newly described mediator of vascular repair, was added to normal culture medium, to search for possible additional benefit. PPE:N-coatings, especially on PET, increased and accelerated cell adhesion and growth, compared with control PET and with standard polystyrene culture plates (PCP). PPE:N was also found to increase the resistance to apoptosis in VSMC, an important finding as aneurysms are characterised by VMSC depletion caused by a pro-apoptotic phenotype. Addition of CS in solution further increased migration and resistance to apoptosis. In conclusion, PPE:N-coating and/or CS could promote vascular repair around SGs following EVAR.

    Abstract = {Steady-state modelling and experimental results are given on the electric arc attachment on cold carbon cathodes working at low pressure. The modelling results are compared with the case of copper cathodes and with experimental data on vacuum arc erosion characteristics for graphite materials. A region of existence of a physically meaningful solution for self-sustained operation of the steady-state cathode spot is given in the electron temperature-cathode spot plasma pressure space. A solution domain comprised between T-e approximate to 1.2-1.5 eV and p approximate to 2-45 atm corresponding to carbon surface temperatures in the range 4200-4900 K is found. Values of the local heat flux to the cathode surface are evaluated in the range 1-20 x 10(10) Wm(-2), and ratios of the various contributions to this flux and current density are given. Also given are the cathode spot radii and upper/lower limits for the erosion rate through vapourization, these being compared with experimental data. It is shown that the cathode spot pressure conditions can provide a mechanism for the control of macroparticle emission on carbon. This effect is used experimentally through cathode spot plasma confinement for the reduction of the microdroplet emission in arc sources used for diamondlike film deposition. Experimental data obtained on graphite materials are in agreement with the model-based design guidelines.},

    Abstract = {Background: The loss of the notochordal cells from the nucleus pulposus is associated with ageing and disc degeneration. However, understanding the mechanisms responsible for the loss of these cells has been hampered in part due to the difficulty of culturing and maintaining their phenotype. Furthermore, little is known about the influence of the substratum on the molecular markers of notochordal cells. Methods: Notochordal cells were isolated from lumbar spine of non-chondrodystrophoid dogs and cultured on N-rich plasma polymer layers, so-called "PPE:N" ( N-doped plasma-polymerised ethylene, containing up to 36% [N]) surfaces, for 3, 7 or 14 days. Gene expression of vimentin ( VIM), pleiotrophin ( PTN), matrix Gla protein ( MGP), cartilage oligomeric matrix protein ( COMP), keratin 18 ( KRT 18), aggrecan ( AGG), collagen type 1 ( COL1A2), collagen type 2 ( COL2A1) was analyzed through semi-quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction ( RT-PCR).
    Results: Notochordal cells were maintained in culture on PPE:N for up to 14 days with no loss in cell viability. Except for VIM, gene expression varied depending on the culture periods and [ N] concentration of the substratum. Generally, PPE: N surfaces altered gene expression significantly when cells were cultured for 3 or 7 days.
    Conclusion: The present study has shown that notochordal cells from dogs can attach to and grow on PPE: N surfaces. Analysis of the expression of different genes in these cells cultured on different N-functionalized surfaces indicates that cellular behaviour is gene-specific and time-dependent. Further studies are required to better understand the roles of specific surface functionalities on receptor sites, and their effects on cellular phenotypes.},

    Abstract = {A process for the synthesis of organic layer-coated metal nanoparticles is presented. Metal nanoparticles are synthesized by the low-pressure pulsed arc evaporation of a metal cathode surface, followed by the in-flight deposition of a thin organic layer by capacitively coupled radio-frequency plasma polymerization from a gaseous hydrocarbon monomer. The stability of the pulsed arc system and the cathode erosion rate are discussed. The effects of operating conditions such as power, reactor pressure and inert gas flow rate on the average size of produced bare copper nanoparticles and the properties of the organic coating are studied. A 'characteristic map' for the in-flight plasma polymerization from the C2H6 monomer of the organic layer onto the Cu nanoparticles is developed. The produced copper nanoparticles are characterized by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The FE-SEM and TEM images reveal coated copper nanoparticles with the diameter of the metal core ranging from a few to 50 nm and the thickness of the organic layer ranging from 3 to 10 nm. The XPS results show that the plasma polymer film is chemically adsorbed onto the surface of the copper nanoparticle.},

These samples were then placed downstream of an arc plasma reactor to collect individual copper nanoparticles (5-30 nm in diameter). It was observed that the Cu nanoparticles preferentially adhere onto CNT and that the macro-particles (diameter > 1 mu m), a usual co-product obtained with metal nanoparticles in the arc plasma synthesis, are not collected. Cu-Ni nanoparticles, a catalyst for CNT growth, were deposited on CNT to grow multibranched CNT. CNT-embedded thin films were produced by re-melting the deposited nanoparticles.},

We first demonstrate the importance of accounting for the effect of the voltage probe used to measure the electrical parameters of the torch on its ignition and operation characteristics. When operated with a main plasma gas flow rate of 1 SLM He and a power level of similar to 1 W, the torch shows an optimum in the production of excited atomic oxygen for a O-2 now of similar to 3.5 SCCM injected downstream from the plasma-forming region through a capillary electrode (i.e., 0.35 v/v % O-2/He). It is shown that endothelial cells are detached from the Petri dishes surface under the action of the optimized plasma jet and that this effect does not originate from heating and fluid shearing effects. It is postulated that the cell detachment is caused solely by plasma-induced biochemical processes taking place at the cell-substrate interface.},

    Abstract = {The paper highlights and provides solutions to the difficulties encountered with electrical probe measurements performed on a miniature, high capacitive impedance plasma device excited at 13.56 MHz. It is shown that a proper calibration of the phase angle between the circuit current and load voltage signals is required when commercial capacitive voltage probes (Tektronix P6139A and P5100 models) are used. A method to calculate the electrical characteristics of the plasma source and accounting for this calibration is described. The P6139A probe, which has the largest input capacitance and shortest cable length, introduced the smallest phase angle (+2 +/- 1 degrees), while the P5100 probe, which is used for higher input voltages and has a longer cable length, introduced a considerably larger phase angle (-34 +/- 1 degrees) for typical resistive loads. Simple circuit models are developed in an attempt to isolate the phase induced by the probe capacitance and cable length. The application of the proposed calibration to a miniature atmospheric pressure glow discharge source considerably reduced the error in the calculation of the power dissipated in the plasma device, though it remained relatively high ( 1 W +/- 42%) due to the highly capacitive nature of the device.},

    Abstract = {Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are pluripotent progenitor cells with the ability to generate cartilage, bone, muscle, tendon, ligament, and fat. However, recent evidence indicates that a major drawback of current cartilage- and intervertebral disc-tissue engineering is that human MSCs isolated from some arthritic patients (a clinically relevant source of stem cells) express type X collagen (a marker of chondrocyte hypertrophy associated with endochondral ossification) and osteogenic markers. Some studies have attempted to use growth factors to inhibit type X collagen expression, but none has addressed the possible effect of the chemical composition of the substratum on chondrocyte hypertrophy and osteogenesis. Here, we examine the growth and differentiation potential of human MSCs cultured on nitrogen (N)-rich plasma polymer layers (N-doped plasma-polymerized ethylene, containing up to 36% nitrogen; PPE:N). We show that PPE:N almost completely suppresses the expression not only of type X collagen, but also of osteogenic marker genes such as alkaline phosphatase, bone sialoprotein, and osteocalcin. In contrast, neither aggrecan nor type I collagen expression were significantly affected. These results indicate that PPE: N coatings may be suitable surfaces for inducing MSCs to a chondrocyte or disc-like phenotype for tissue engineering of cartilage or intervertebral discs, in which hypertrophy and osteogenesis are suppressed.},

It is demonstrated that carbon nanotubes growth is directly affected by the roughness on the surface. Carbon nanombes density is large in each growth zone observed on the surface; these zones being spread sparsely for coarse roughness of the surface. The density of carbon nanotubes decreases and the number of growth zones increases as the roughness on the surface is reduced. The above trend was not affected with C2H2 flow time changing from 10 to 2 min. A similar result was obtained using a Ni alloy as substrate, but the effect of surface roughness on the growth of CNTs was less pronounced.

The detached cells were successfully transplanted to a second dish and a proliferation assay showed the transplanted cells continued to grow. Propidium iodide diffused into the cells, suggesting that the cell membrane had been permeabilized, yet the cells remained viable 24 h after treatment. In separate experiments, hydrophobic, bacteriological grade polystyrene Petri dishes were functionalized. The plasma treatment reduced the contact angle from 93 degrees. to 35 degrees, and promoted cell adhesion. Two different torch nozzles, 500 mu m and 150 mu m in internal diameter, were used in the surface functionalization experiments. The width of the tracks functionalized by the torch, as visualized by cell adhesion, was approximately twice the inside diameter of the nozzle. These results indicate that the miniature plasma torch could be used in biological micropatterning, as it does not use chemicals like the present photolithographic techniques. Due to its small size and manouvrability, the torch also has the ability to pattern complex 3D surfaces.},

    Abstract = {A novel atmospheric-pressure plasma-polymerised thin film material has been deposited on various substrates using a pilot scale dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) reactor. Deposition kinetics and physico-chemical 1 characterisation data of nitrogen-rich plasma-polymerised ethylene (PPE:N) films, obtained using feed gas mixtures of N-2 (ca. 10 slm) and C2H4 (ca. 10 seem) are described. Nitrogen concentrations, [N], in the PPE:N films up to ca. 40% were determined by XPS; the concentrations of N-functionality of greatest interest, primary amines, were determined by chemical derivatisation with 4-trifluoromethyl-benzaldehyde. The PPE:N films were further characterised by attenuated total reflectance infra-red spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR), contact angle goniometry, and atomic force microscopy (AFM). Square arrays of PPE:N "islands", for example 30 mu m in diameter repeated every 200 gm, were deposited on polymers, for example biaxially oriented poly(propylene) (BOPP), through specially-prepared Kapton (R) polyimide masks. Cell culture experiments were then conducted on these micro-patterned surfaces, using various cell types of interest in orthopaedics, for example growth plate and articular chondrocytes, or human U937 macrophages, the latter of which do not adhere to existing cell culture dishes. In all these cases the cells rapidly adhered and proliferated on the PPE:N islands, but not elsewhere on the polymer surfaces. In an effort to gain insight into cell adhesion mechanisms, adhesion of both macrophages and chondrocytes was tested against films with different [N] values. U-937 macrophages adhered to films containing 25% or more [N], but not at all to films with lower values of [N], suggesting the existence of a "critical" value, [N](crit), necessary to induce cell adhesion.},

    Abstract = {The design of a miniature low-power atmospheric pressure glow discharge torch (APGD-t) and the results of its preliminary electrical and spectroscopic characterization are presented. A capacitively-coupled pulsed RF (13.56 MHz) helium plasma jet is formed in a converging confinement tube and O-2 is injected downstream in the plasma afterglow region through a capillary electrode. With 1 SLM He, the APGD-t produced a non-thermal plasma jet of 500 mu m-diameter and approximate to 2.5 mm-long at power levels ranging from 1 to 5 W. At approximate to 1 W, the gas temperature and He excitation temperature near the nozzle exit were approximate to 50 degrees C and slightly below 2000 K, respectively. The breakdown voltage in 1 SLM He is approximately 220 Vpk-to-O. Careful electric probe measurements and circuit analysis revealed the strong effect of the voltage probe on the total load impedance. The injection of 10 SCCM O-2 through the capillary electrode led to the transport of atomic O further downstream in the plasma jet and to a slight increase of the He excitation temperature without significant effects on the electrical properties and jet length. Alternatively, the addition of an equivalent amount of O-2 (1 v/v%) to the plasma-forming gas affected the electrical properties slightly, but led to a drastic contraction of the plasma jet. The atomic oxygen production and transport conditions provided by the APGD-t are promising for precise bio-applications such as the treatment of skin tissues and cells.},

    Abstract = {A probabilistic modelling approach for the study of the cathode spot displacement dynamic in high-pressure arc systems is developed in an attempt to interpret the observed voltage fluctuations. The general framework of the model allows to define simple, probabilistic displacement rules, the so-called cathode spot dynamic rules, for various possible surface states (un-arced metal, arced, contaminated) and to study the resulting dynamic of the cathode spot displacements over one or several arc passages. The displacements of the type-A cathode spot (macro-spot) in a magnetically rotating arc using concentric electrodes made up of either clean or contaminated metal surfaces is considered. Experimental observations for this system revealed a 1/f(similar to1) signature in the frequency power spectrum (FPS) of the arc voltage for anchoring arc conditions on the cathode (e.g. clean metal surface), while it shows a 'white noise' signature for conditions favouring a smooth movement (e.g. oxide-contaminated cathode surface). Through an appropriate choice of the local probabilistic displacement rules, the model is able to correctly represent the dynamic behaviours of the type-A cathode spot, including the FPS for the arc elongation (i.e. voltage) and the arc erosion trace formation. The model illustrates that the cathode spot displacements between re-strikes can be seen as a diffusion process with a diffusion constant which depends on the surface structure. A physical interpretation for the jumping probability associated with the re-strike event is given in terms of the electron emission processes across dielectric contaminants present on the cathode surface.},

On the basis of the asymptotic analysis, a simple exponential-accuracy analytical model of the ion layer is given. Voltage drops in different zones (the ionization layer, the ion-electron layer, and the ion layer) are identified. The voltage drop in the ion-electron layer is found to be quite close to kT(e)/e.

The primary objective of this paper is to demonstrate that, even though the are attachment on both refractory and non-refractory cathodes appear substantially different, they follow the same physics and therefore the same model can be applied to describe both situations. Indeed, it is shown that the two situations are actually representing the two extremes of a unique description; the self-sustaining operation of an are discharge on a refractory (hot) cathode is achieved without the need of vaporization of the cathode surface while for non-refractory (cold) cathodes, a strong vaporization resulting in a pressure build up in the cathode region is necessary for self-sustained are operation.},

Results show that the emission current densities predicted by the Richardson-Dushman equation are always lower than those predicted by the more accurate treatment. The disagreement between the two predictions is in the range 20-30% for the conditions encountered in numerical modelling of the attachment of a thermal are to a hot tungsten cathode whereas it is much larger when a cold copper cathode is considered (>175%).

    Abstract = {The importance of having high local cathode spot pressures for the self-sustaining operation of a thermal are plasma on a cold cathode is theoretically investigated, Applying a cathode sheath model to a Cu cathode, it is shown that cathode spot plasma pressures ranging 7.4-9.2 atm and 34.2-50 atm for electron temperatures of similar to 1 eV are needed to account for current densities of 10(9) and 10(10) A.m(-2), respectively, The study of the different contributions from the ions, the emission electrons, and the back-diffusing plasma electrons to the total Current and heat transfer to the cathode spot has allowed us to show the following. 1) Due to the high metallic plasma densities, a strong heating of the cathode occurs and an important surface electric field is established at the cathode surface causing strong thermo-field emission of electrons, 2) Due to the presence of a high density of ions in the cathode vicinity, an important fraction of the total current is carried by the ions and the electron emission is enhanced, 3) The total current is only slightly reduced by the presence of back-diffusing plasma electrons in the cathode sheath, For a current density j(tot) = 10(9)A.m(-2), the current to the cathode surface is mainly transported by the ions (76-91% of j(tot)) while for a current density j(tot) = 10(10) A.m(-2), the thermo-field electrons become the main current carriers (64-72% of j(tot)). It is shown that the cathode spot plasma parameters are those of a high pressure metallic gas where deviations from the ideal gas law and important lowering of the ionization potentials are observed.},

    Abstract = {A numerical model describing the attachment of an electric are on a vaporizing non-refractory cathode is developed and applied to a Cu cathode. The model describes the arc-cathode interaction zone by a combination of a quasi-stationary vacuum are cathode spot model with a collisionless cathode sheath model for the current transfer in the cathode region. The conditions of pressure and electron temperature within the cathode spot plasma necessary to account for current densities ranging from 10(8) A m(-2) (upper limit for non-vaporizing cathode models) to 4 x 10(10) A m(-2) are presented. Results show that current densities higher than 10(10) A m(-1) can only be accounted for with metallic plasma pressures exceeding 35 atm and electron temperatures ranging from 1 to 2 eV within the cathode spots. The current transfer to the cathode is mainly assumed by the ions at low current densities (<10(10) A m(-2)) and by the thermo-field electrons for higher current densities. The heat flux to the cathode surface under the spots is mainly due to the flux of returning ions and ranges from similar to 10(10) to 10(11) W m(-2) for current densities ranging from similar to 10(9) to 10(10) A m(-2). At low current densities (<10(10) A m(-2)), the main heat loss is by conduction through the cathode while at high current densities, the Nottingham cooling associated with the thermo-field emission of electrons dominates. The model allowed us to define the upper and lower limits for the vacuum erosion rate by vaporization of the cathode. It is shown that the experimentally obtained vacuum erosion rate value for Cu falls between both limits for an electron temperature within the cathode spot of 1 to 2 eV.},

    Abstract = {The predictions of a numerical model of the cathode-sheath region of high-pressure arcs using three different equations for the cathodic electron-emission current density are compared for two typical are-cathode systems. These equations for cathodic electron emission include: (i) the field-enhanced thermionic emission (FEE) equation representative of the electron emission for high temperatures and moderate electric field strengths (< 10(8) V m(-1)); (ii) the Murphy and Good (MG) equation for thermo-field (T-F) emission valid for high temperatures and high surface electric field strengths in the range about 10(7)-10(10) V m(-1); and (iii) the Murphy and Good equation for T-F emission enhanced by the presence of a high density of slowly moving ions in the cathode region (the MG+I equation). Results show that, in the case of a metal vapour are (representative of vacuum arcs and high-pressure arcs on non-refractory cathodes) the use of the MG+I equation is always prescribed due to the formation of the high-local-pressure cathode-spot plasma. For high-pressure arcs on refractory cathodes the results show that, at atmospheric pressure, the generally used FEE equation introduces an underestimation by at least around 20% of the cathodic electron current density compared with the MG+I equation. The same comparison but for an ambient pressure of 50 atm shows that this underestimation becomes considerable.},

For this, the effects of chamber pressure, spray distance and torch nozzle design on the particle surface temperature and velocity as well as the fraction of hot particles included in the stream of processed material, were investigated. A comparison between the velocity measurements by laser Doppler anemometry (LDA) and by the particle time-of-flight technique is presented in order to emphasize the difference between the velocity of the hot particles, and that of the total particle population, cold and hot. The influence of the individual particle mass on particle entrainment in the plasma jet from the ambient atmosphere in the vacuum chamber is discussed.},

    Abstract = {A method is presented for the simultaneous measurement, in flight, of the surface temperature and velocity of individual particles under plasma conditions. The method is based on the direct measurement of thermal radiation at two wavelengths emitted from the particle surface as they cross a well defined measurement volume within the plasma. A detailed description of the data treatment is presented for typical signals obtained. A simple method using each individual particle emission signal and the associated photomultiplier noise is used to estimate the minimum surface temperature that can be measured. Measurements have been carried out using alumina powder (d(p) = 49 mu m sigma = 4 mu m) injected axially into an inductively coupled radiofrequency (RF) plasma operated using an Ar/H-2 mixture at 20 kW and 250 Torr. Results of measurements at a distance of 188 mm from the tip of the injection probe give a mean particle surface temperature of 3017 K and a corresponding mean velocity of 23.2 m s(-1). Simultaneous measurement using a laser Doppler anemometer gives a mean velocity of 22.5 m s(-1) Under these conditions, the minimum particle surface temperature that can be measured is estimated to be 1690 K.},
