The journal Nature Communication has published the scientific work of Prof. Dr. Uroš Cvelbar and his colleagues from Korean university KAIST,The creation of electric wind due to the electrohydrodynamic force, where they unlocked the secret of electric wind origin. They report on direct evidence that the wind is generated by electrohydrodynamic force, which is caused by coupling of charged particles with neutrals. Coupling between these particles has a long history and is a popular scientific subject since it is supposed to be one of the basic mechanisms of natural phenomena including convection of ions and neutrals in planetary atmospheres and movement of neutrals in electric discharges. The direct evidence for this phenomena will probably improve fundamental knowledge on plasma, ranging from plasma processing, fusion, astrophysics to space propulsion.
