The plasma of an atmospheric pressure plasma jet strongly interferes with a liquid when it just touches the liquid surface. The gas flow of the jet exerts a force on the liquid surface pushing it downward, while the plasma exerts a force that is partly counteracting the gas flow induced force. The downward force in the center of the liquid recipient causes the liquid to circulate with a circulation time of ∼2 s. Due to this circulation the color change of a dye proceeds homogeneously.
