Microdischarges produced in conductive liquids generate extreme environments, with highly complex physical and chemical characteristics, and are widely used for a range of applications. This project aims to develop a better understanding of these systems, and develop new strategies to control them. In the first phase, a suite of experimental diagnostics were implemented with the overarching aim of developing insights into the physical processes occurring in individual microdischarges at the small scale that could then be transferred into control strategies at larger scales. The project focus is on Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) of Al. An active combination of complementary experimental and simulation approaches is used to generate new insights into both physical and chemical processes with an emphasis on particle and energy transfer across the electrode-gas-electrolyte interfaces at both short and longer timescales.
