Role of Gas Analysis in the Future of Biogas

Although subject to fierce debate over the last few decades, there is now a global scientific consensus that the earth’s climate is warming at an unsustainable rate. Data gathered by Berkeley Earth, the Japanese Meteorological Agency, the Met Office Hadley Centre,...
Plasma Engineering: What is Electron Cyclotron Resonance?

Plasma Engineering: What is Electron Cyclotron Resonance?

Electron Cyclotron Resonance (ECR) is an advanced excitation method used in plasma engineering. The underlying principle of ECR is explained by Lorentz force; a combination of both electric and magnetic forces induced by applied magnetic fields. Free electrons in a...
