We published a research paper in the latest volume of Vakuum in Forschung und Praxis about recent developments in our diffuse coplanar surface barrier discharge (DCSBD) technology for roll-to-roll manufacture.

In the paper, we introduce the physical background of dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) technologies and their brier history, along with the contributions of our founder Prof. Mirko Černák. We present and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the effect of volume and coplanar DBD treatments performed in R2R mode on the surface of polyamide. The paper also discusses the potential of R2R plasma treatments for next-generation applications of novel flexible and printed electronics.

The paper was published upon an invitation from R2R-Net initiative in a volume of Vakuum in Forschung und Praxis devoted to plasma technologies for roll-to-roll manufacture.

We thank Prof. Christian Oehr for Vakuum in Forschung und Praxis editors for the invitation to publish in the journal.
