Abstract: Atmospheric pressure nonequilibrium plasmas have made
a recent remarkable progress in formation techniques including atmospheric
pressure glow discharge (APG), dielectric barrier discharge (DBD), corona
discharge, surface discharge, ultrashort pulsed discharge, etc., and
are expanding their applications into the field of energy and environment
as well as material conversion processes. This paper will especially
focus on a large improvement of DBD by combining it with squared ultrashort
high voltage pulses and various applications.
