The major mission of the plasma research center is to cooperate with neighboring academics and industries in order to pursue research and development of plasma technology and applications in Taiwan. Collaborating with many overseas institutions such as Utsunomiya University, Akita University, and Gunma University in Japan, and McMaster University in Canada, the center aims to facilitate the exchange and the transfer of plasma technology, and eventually to ground plasma technology in Taiwan. In addition, the plasma research center also targets to fulfill the function of industrial service.
With the emphasis on green technology and cleaning process as its central goal, the center develops several plasma technologies, e.g. sterilization and fresh fruit preservation, waste treatment (waste water treatment, polymer wastes plasma treatment, plasma refrigerator, medical wastes treatment), surface modification (biomedical materials, textiles, metal materials, powder materials), coating and semiconductor technology (sputtering technology, nano diamond film technology, and PCB desemear).
