I am tring to understsnd why I loose a plasma formation in a small diameter orifice. I have a glass tube reactor with a substrate holder at the center region, this holder isolates or seals the reactor so the gas has to pass through four small orifice passages. When 13.56 MHz @ 50 watts is applied all four passages will flash a plasma, then it disappears. I will have a plasma cloud on both sides of the holder, but not through the small orifice openings.
Each time I toggle the RF power off/on the plasma will flash through the holes consistantly, but will not sustain.
