Successfully Developed Standard Reference Data for Plasma Properties


The Korea Institute of Fusion Energy (KFE) received a Minister’s Citation from the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy as an organization of merit in the field of national standardization at the Commemoration Ceremony for the 2022 World Standards Day held on October 13th.


​This was in recognition of KFE’s contributions to industrial development in the establishment and operation of the Data Center for Plasma Properties, an institution that develops and distributes standard reference data for plasma properties crucial to plasma technologies and applications that are used by many industries.

Plasma, often called the fourth state of matter, is widely used in advanced industries such as semiconductors and displays, as well as medicine and environmental technologies for its unique physical properties. The effective use of plasma technology in industries requires data on the physical and chemical changes to plasma in interactions with other substances, as well as a wide range of variables.


Since the KFE Institute of Plasma Technology’s Data Center for Plasma Properties was designated data center no. 1 in charge of developing national standard reference data  in 2006, it has been developing and distributing standard reference data for plasma properties through the collection, measurement, and evaluation of plasma property data.


Standard reference data for plasma properties refer to scientifically analyzed and measured values of the physical properties of electrons, ions, atoms, and molecules in plasma. They form guidelines to the use of plasma by allowing us to understand the unique properties of plasma. The Data Center for Plasma Properties has developed over 980 sets of standard reference data, reliably supporting research and industry in related fields.


Such standardized plasma data improve the quality of future plasma-related technology, and powers timely responses to technology demand from industries, contributing to the technological competitiveness of Korean industries.


KFE President Suk Jae Yoo remarked, “Active R&D in plasma technology is taking place around the world.” In response to the honor he also noted, “The Data Center will continue to improve its capacities in the generation and evaluation of reliable plasma data as Korean’s only plasma properties measurement institution”.
