The authors report on the introduction of a magnetic field to gliding arc discharge (GD) in order to enhance surface modification by nonthermal plasma at atmospheric-pressure. The GD is induced between two wire electrodes by using a pulse high-voltage power supply with peak-to-peak voltage of 5 kV. When a magnetic field of 0.25 T is applied, the GD enlarged and a 19-cm-long stretch of plasma is excited. The surface treatment of polyethylene terephthalate and polytetrafluoroethylene films is performed. The adhesion improved by up to ∼30 times due to the enhanced chemical activity in the films.
