Plasma immersion ion implantation has successfully been applied to treat the outer surface of objects with an irregular geometry. Theoretical and experimental investigations have also demonstrated the capability to implant the inner surfaces of cylindrical bores. However, practical implementation of the process is not straightforward due to the finite plasma volume. It is shown that a hardware system with inner plasma sources may be a more practical solution.
