Recent trends of liquid crystal display (LCD) fabrication toward a significant enlargement of glass substrates require large-area plasma sources with a scale length exceeding 1 m. To meet this requirement, large-area plasma sources with internal low-inductance antenna (LIA) units have been developed for uniform processes, in which design principles for selecting antenna size and configurations in the multiple installation of the LIA units are established. In this study, the effects of antenna size were examined in terms of plasma production characteristics indicating small increase in plasma density with a decrease in antenna size (or antenna impedance). Furthermore, plasma density distributions with the LIA units were investigated to understand the nature of plasma diffusion, which can be utilized for designing plasma profiles with multiple LIA units. First, it was shown that the plasma density distributions followed exponential decay as a function of distance from the antenna. Secondly, the measured plasma density profiles with multiple LIA units were shown to agree well with those obtained by superposing those described by exponential functions, which can be utilized for prediction.
