A new sterilization method in the field of protection and conservation of materials from microorganisms is plasma treatment. Plasma treatment is a well-established technique in a number of processes, e.g., plasma cleaning, etching, and coating. This paper describes a new method, microwave-induced argon plasma at atmospheric pressure for the sterilization of microorganisms, and presents some experimental results regarding the sterilization of some selected bacteria and fungi.
