Welcome to the Fisher Research Group in the Chemistry Department at Colorado State University.  Our group uses plasma processing to fabricate and modify materials to achieve specific properties and performance for a wide range of applications including water filtration, biomedical devices, gas sensors, and solar cell materials.

In our labs we employ a variety of analytical
techniques to analyze materials
properties and performance before
and after plasma treatment. Knowledge of physical, materials, and analytical chemistry in conjunction with spectroscopic tools allow us to examine plasmas on a fundamental level to understand the chemical processes that take place during plasma processing. Understanding plasma chemistry provides insight into similar systems including plasma-assisted catalysis for NxOy abatement.
