We generate NF3 plasma for the first time by commercial 50 Hz ac discharge. Mass and energy analysis of the plasma shows the predominant positive ion NF2+, followed by the NF3+ parent ion, NF+, and F+. The measured energy distribution of the ions corresponds to the energy distribution expected from the time dependent plasma potential in a 50 Hz discharge. The plasma can be applied for native oxide removal from Si substrates.
