Invention sparked by COVID-19 pandemic safely disinfects surfaces continuously

An invention to apply plasma to frequently touched items for continuous disinfection could provide a safe, effective, non-chemical way to reduce pathogens on various surfaces such as keypads, escalator handrails, and other high-touch surfaces, inventors at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) say.

PPPL physicist wins third place at Innovation Forum for advanced liquid centrifuge invention

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) physicist Erik Gilson won third place at the Princeton University Keller Center’s 15th Annual Innovation Forum for his invention with a team of PPPL researchers of an advanced liquid centrifuge. The centrifuge can separate the components of a liquid for applications such as treating waste water from oil sands processing, fruit juice production, processing ink pigments and for other industrial applications.

PPPL inventions take the spotlight at Technology Showcase

A  day-long Technology Showcase spotlighting the unique research, technical expertise, and inventions that the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory offers to collaborators and funders attracted a wide range of potential partners.   

The Dec. 18 event highlighted several PPPL inventions and cutting-edge technologies. These included low-temperature plasma research and applications such as plasma nanosynthesis, the production of nanoparticles with plasma, as well as PPPL’s engineering capabilities in areas such as machine learning and computer simulations.
