The KInetic Testbed for PLASMa Environmental and Biological Applications (KIT-PLASMEBA) aims constructing an open-source kinetic code for N2-O2 mixtures (in presence also of rare gases, Ar or He), providing the combined chemical and transport description of plasma charged / neutral species, both in volume and surface phases, for user-defined mixture compositions, pressure, radial dimension and excitation conditions.

Hosting institution and funding

KIT-PLASMEBA is hosted by Instituto de Plasmas e Fusão Nuclear of Instituto Superior Técnico and is funded by the Portuguese Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (PTDC/FISPLA/1243/2014)
