We are studying non-equilibrium reaction environments and interfaces, produced by plasma and/or laser excitation, for synthesizing novel materials, for developing novel processing techniques, and for developing new applications with them. The main topics are as follows;
1) Optical diagnostics of an interface between plasma and a condensed matter
2) Plasma-induced reactions in a microdroplet for 3D printing
3) Nano-composite materials synthesis with plasma-induced reactions in liquids
4) Nano-particles synthesis via laser-ablated plasma in high-pressure liquids
5) Applications of photoexcited surfaces in sensors or energy devices
