In this study, firstly, N2 atmospheric pressure plasma jet (APPJ) system was presented. Nitrogen gas discharges are produced as jet using an AC power supply which can be adjusted between 6-18 kV and the frequency value of 13-20 kHz at atmospheric pressure. The change of length of produced atmospheric pressure nitrogen plasma jet, according to gas flow rate has been investigated and the produced jet length was approximately 2 cm for 5 L/min when the applied voltage was 18 kV and the frequency was 15 kHz. Nitrogen plasma jet produced at atmospheric pressure was examined with optical emission spectroscopy (OES) and the correlation between gas flow rate and emission spectra were investigated. Furthermore, electron temperature and electron density of atmospheric pressure nitrogen gas plasma jet were estimated under different flow rates of N2 gas.
