This project aims to strengthen the fundamental research in the field of plasma physics specifically of low-temperature plasmas (LTP) and laser produced plasmas (LPP), in Croatia. As such it brings together all active researchers in the field, which were previously working within three separate projects funded by MSES (at present altogether nine researchers). Present joint effort has a potential to bring innovations in the field by combining micro discharge and laser plasma sources, as well as, to the development of plasma diagnostics methods and techniques.
The importance of the field has recently been asset in several documents (review papers). In addition to fundamental importance plasma research is of particularly high importance for development of various new technologies in biomedicine, nanotechnology, food industry, textile industry etc..
