The potential for deployment of cold plasma sources in medical and biological applications continues to increase in areas such as dentistry, surgery, wound sterilisation and general surface decontamination. Successful optimisation of these gas-phase cold plasmas requires detailed characterisation and quantification of the plasma beam to establish the actual abundances of the reactive species within the feed-gas and the variances with feed-gas composition.
