Plasmas are everywhere in the Universe (e.g., stars including the Sun). They are also present in our daily life (e.g., lighting lamps) and in a range of devices and machines used in the medical and industrial domains. Because of the large density and temperature domains covered by plasmas, they are divided into low-temperature or cold plasmas and high-temperature plasmas, each category having its specific characteristics and different applications. Plasmas are also generated using different techniques such as discharges using Direct Current (DC) or Radio Frequency (RF) waves, the latter being inductively or capacitively coupled to the medium (matter). However, one can still find some common points to all laboratory plasmas through the methods used for their diagnostics or some of their applications. The objective of this Special Issue of Applied Sciences, entitled “Plasma Science and Technology”, is to summarize in a single issue the major and latest techniques that are used to produce plasma and their applications as well as various scientific studies related to laboratory plasmas. This Special Issue is not limited to plasma physics and chemistry but is open to other scientific fields and to interdisciplinary researchers. Therefore, this Special Issue welcomes original manuscripts concerning plasma diagnostics, plasma physics and plasma chemistry, plasma science, plasma production and technology, and plasma applications. In addition to laboratory plasmas, manuscripts devoted to astrophysical plasmas will also be considered.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
