Abstract: It has been shown that plasma generated in contact with liquid can be tailored to tune the composition of plasma functionalized liquids. For biomedical applications, it is necessary to understand the generation of the plasma treated liquids to modulate the composition and thus the biological response. In this work, two distinct discharge compositions were realized by modifying the location of the ground electrode in a pin-to-liquid plasma system. Through this simple modification to the configurations, the spatiotemporal characteristics of the discharge were significantly affected which, in turn, affected the composition of the generated plasma activated water (PAW). Colorimetric testing of the PAW generated from each system revealed that only one configuration was able to generate PAW with a high concentration of H2O2. Using time-, space-, and wavelength-resolved imaging of excited plasma species [OH, N2 (SPS), N2+ (FNS), and atomic O], the differences in PAW composition were linked to the differences observed in the discharge dynamics between the two configurations.
