Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

    This paper presents the results of analyses of the transient resistance and inductance of spark plasma, parameters which have been obtained using the hydrodynamic approach described in [2], and a new model for plasma resistance. A lumped RLC model to represent the transient process in the spark-discharge plasma has been built and solved using PSpice simulation software. The dynamic plasma resistance, R(t), and inductance, L(t), have been used in the lumped-element circuit.
