Atmospheric pressure plasmas are formed in open atmosphere and result in high reactivity due to formation of multiple excited and ionized species. These plasmas play an important role in many applications including plasma medicine, agriculture, plasma processing, catalysis, and aerospace engineering. This Special Topic, which brings together researchers in all areas of experimental, computational, and theoretical study of atmospheric plasmas, provides a collection of exciting new research on the fundamental aspects of atmospheric pressure plasmas and their applications.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Generation of atmospheric pressure plasmas
- Plasma-surface interactions
- Material processing
- Chemical applications
- Medical and agriculture applications
- Development of novel diagnostics and modeling approaches
- Fundamental kinetics of atmospheric pressure plasmas
- Plasma aerodynamic flow control
- Plasma-assisted combustion
- Atmospheric-pressure plasmas in microchannels and microcavities

Submission and acceptance criteria:
Manuscripts considered for publication as Articles in Journal of Applied Physics are expected to meet the journal’s standard of acceptance, i.e. to report on original and timely results that significantly advance understanding in the current status of contemporary applied physics: material that is exclusively review in nature is not considered for publication. Manuscripts submitted for consideration in this Special Topic must meet the same criteria and will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Editorial Team of Journal of Applied Physics will issue final decisions on the submitted manuscripts.
