Ion energy distributions (IEDs) have been determined at the radio frequency (rf)-biasedelectrode in an inductively coupled acetylene–argon plasma for various substrate bias voltagesand frequencies under conditions suitable for diamond-like carbon (DLC) and polymer-likefilm deposition. These are compared with those obtained at a capacitively coupled plasmagrounded wall. In the former, for pressures
