Abstract:

THE PROPOSED PROCESS WILL USE ACCELERATED IONS TO REMOVE ORGANIC MATTER BY PHYSICALLY DESORBING MOLECULAR FRAGMENTS AND BY REACTING CHEMICALLY TO PRODUCE VOLATILE, NON-TOXIC GASES SUCH AS CO2. STUDIES WITH RELATED EQUIPMENT HAVE DEMONSTRATED FEASIBILITY. PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMAL SIZE OF THE PROCESS CHAMBER AND HOW SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS CAN MOST EFFECTIVELY BE ARRANGED IN IT; THE OPTIMAL AIR PRESSURE INSIDE THE CHAMBER; THE REQUIRED POWER DENSITY; AND EVALUATE ALTERNATIVE PROCESS GENERATED BY DIRECT CURRENT, ALTERNATING CURRENT AND RADIO FREQUENCY.
