Weakly ionized plasmas
Dielectric Barrier Discharge
The main research topic in which Gabriele Neretti is engaged,
involves the study of weakly ionized gases and non-thermal plasmas.
The main research fields in which he pursues his activity are the
following. In the aerospace domain he is performing numerical and
experimental studies on the MHD interaction in hypersonic flows,
concerning the re-entry of vehicle in atmosphere. In the
aeronautical area he is studying the EHD interaction generated by a
DBD plasma actuator suitable for active flow control over
aerodynamic surfaces. In the plasma-tissue-engineering field he is
working on the surface treatment of bio-compatible scuffled, for
cell adhesion improvement, by using DBD plasmas. This plasma
typology is also used for the abatement of air pollutants, as VOCs,
and the sterilization of parasites as oocytes.
