Dielectric barrier discharges (DBD) have been investigated for more than a century and were mainly used for ozone production until applications like plasma medicine and plasma-assisted conversion and catalysis sparked new interest. The rise of nanosecond-pulse generators for the generation of plasma has made it possible to deliver voltage pulses on the same time scale as the streamer lifetime in a DBD. This Special Issue focusses on DBDs from nanosecond to microsecond pulses, with an emphasis on the following topics:
- Physics and diagnostics of nanosecond pulsed DBDs
- Self-organization in DBDs
- Applications of DBDs: plasma medicine, plasma-assisted conversion and catalysis, and plasma agriculture
- DBDs in contact with liquids: experiment and simulation

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. Plasma is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1200 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.
