This method of generating atomic oxygen is more efficient, highly selective in the types of ions generated, and enableslower temperature oxidation of silicon compared with thermal oxidation.
This leads to the formation of active species, such as atomic oxygen, ozone, and free radicals--hydroxyl, superoxide and nitrogen oxides.

929 TA405 The 27 papers examine fundamental properties and the response of materials in such extremes as static and dynamic high pressure, high strain and high strain rates, high radiation and electromagnetic fields, high and low temperatures, corrosive environments, and atomic oxygen.
BOARD 07 Atomic oxygen (AO), a natural species in the earth's atmosphere, is formed when ultraviolet (UV) radiation photo-dissociates oxygen molecules.
Non-ionic forms can further disrupt respiration by catalyzing the interaction of atomic oxygen with the sulfhydryl group, producing an OH molecule and a sulfur bond.
