Abstract

A plasma can loft particles off a surface due to an electric force. This plasma particle lofting has been proposed as a novel cleaning technique for the high-tech industry. This, however, requires a better understanding of the involved processes. Therefore we have used a specialised setup, involving vibration forces, to experimentally measure the forces on a particle on a surface. We have found that applying a plasma causes a significant reduction in particle adhesion. In this contribution we describe these measurements and focus on the effect of capillary forces due to water.
