Plasma Engineering Tools (PET)
Welcome to PET's website
Plasma-based technologies are present in different types of industrial chains with electronics, photovoltaic, optics, food industry, or modification and funcionalization of materials. In recent years, new plasma reactors have been proposed while searching for adequate answers to the challenges with each application. Typically, the tailoring of these reactors involves their modification in terms of excitation (dc/rf/hf), power coupling (capacitive/inductive/wave/current), base-pressure (low/high), and dimensions (large/medium/small).
The project Plasma Engineering Tools (PET) develops simulation tools to describe and optimize, in an effective realistic way, the operation features of different plasma reactors.
PET is a project with the Group of Electronics and Gas Discharges of the
Institute of Plasmas and Nuclear Fusion (IPFN) at
Instituto Superior Técnico (IST).
