Featured PhD ScholarshipLink opens in a new window

Development of electromagnetic wave absorbing catalysts: Design of a two-temperature plasma reactor

Applications open, apply before 15 February 2023

The main objective of this project is to simulate and build a plasma system that generates a two-electron temperature discharge that will be used in plasma gas processes like DRM and NOx production. The modelling will be performed with COMSOL, while experimental validation will be carried out by direct measurements of reactant conversion. Active species identification will eb performed with optical emission spectroscopy. The plasma parameters will be obtained from the wave forms. Additionally, coupling the plasma system with a catalyst will be studied. This PhD project is a part of the ERC Synergy project SCOPELink opens in a new window.
