ssDNA is the accepted abbreviation for 'single stranded DNA'

ssDNA is single stranded because the nucleotides of the sequence have not been base paired and have therefore not formed their respective hydrogen bonds.

ssDNA can arise from the first stage of PCR where dsDNA is heated to denature it thus breaking the hydrogen bonds.
