  Term: Wall Conditioning
  Definition: Describes a class of procedures used to control the composition of materials adsorbed onto the walls of a plasma device. Conditioning is important because material from the walls can create impurities in the plasma, and these impurities typically degrade plasma performance. See also boronization, impurity control, electron cyclotron discharge cleaning.
