I am trying to see if I can generate a plasma from an induction coil that is wrapped around a glass jar under vacuum. Tons of induction coil heatering circuits are on ebay for forging that can supply up to 1000W and operate at a frequency of 100khz.
I am feeding in 30V at 5A to my circuit with the copper coil wrapped around my bell jar under vacuum (~100mTorr) though I am not getting any plasma. Any suggestions? I should be able to ignite that with that pressure and the power in the coil?
