Specifically addressing customer requirements for controlling charge damage, contamination drive-in, and residue removal while maintaining extremely high strip rates, ICP technology uses an electrostatic Faraday shield to eliminate capacitively coupled power and control electron energy distribution in the plasma.
Properly separating the windings will minimize this form of coupling, as will the use of Faraday shields, but such measures cannot completely eliminate coupling, and they increase power-supply costs.
