Capacitively coupled micro-plasma (CCMP) was generated in a capillary on a quartz and a poly (ethyleneterephthalate) (PET) chip of 20 × 20 mm<SUP>2</SUP> by excitation frequency of 13.5660 MHz at atmospheric pressure. The π-type matching circuit was miniaturized (150 × 100 × 40 mm<SUP>3</SUP>) and an inductance <I>L</I> was optimized to satisfy the resonance condition with excitation frequency, so that an atmospheric He discharge was attained at an incident power less than 5 W. He atomic excitation temperature <I>T</I><SUB>exc</SUB> was estimated by the Boltzmann plot. It was found that Texc increases with increasing excitation frequency. The Si oxide thin films were prepared on inner wall of a poly (ethylene terephthalate) (PET) capillary with a cross section of φ500 μm and a length of 6 mm using the CCMP with gas flow rates of O<SUB>2</SUB>+ TEOS/He = 3.5/350 sccm under the condition of atmospheric pressure and room temperature. The X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) mapping confirmed that Si oxide films were deposited on inner wall of a PET capillary.
