    Plasma is ionised gas. It seems unlikely that photons at temperatures around 300 K would have enough energy to ionise anything. Most common ionisation temperatures are around 700 K minimum ( it is possible to produce small amounts of short lived plasma down at 1 mK - would this count for your plasma? )
