Description A novel type of barrier discharge, the so called Diffuse Coplanar Surface Barrier Discharge (DCSBD) operating in air at atmospheric pressure, has been used to clean the surface of aluminium. The effect of plasma treatment was studied by the means of the contact angle measurements on water droplets dropped on the treated aluminium surface. The presented experimental results show an efficient cleaning of the aluminium surface even after short plasma exposure (13 sec). The durability of the treatment (ageing effect) was also investigated. The atomic force microscopy AFM was used for more detailed evaluation of the surface topology changes.
