Abstract

We have investigated plasma profiles of inductively coupled plasmas (ICPs) sustained with a single low-inductance antenna (LIA) in terms of plasma density, electron temperature, and potential formation to understand effects of plasma properties in generation region (near antenna) and those in downstream region. The densities of plasmas sustained with a single antenna were as high as 1012 cm-3 near the antenna and had almost uniform profiles in the downstream region away from the single antenna about 100 mm. The floating potential as low as 5-6 V was achieved by effective suppression of electrostatic coupling due to lowering antenna RF voltage. The plasma density profile was independent of RF power.
