The rf-excited coil in the presence of a plasma is examined in terms of a transformer model and also in terms of the distortion of the electromagnetic fields which is produced by the induced eddy-currents in the plasma. The treatment of rf coils presented here can be applied to either the plasma diagnostics regime or to the generation of the rf electrodeless discharge. Although the calculations of the electric and magnetic fields in this report are for a cylindrically symmetric coil immersed in a uniform, linear plasma, neither the model nor the approach to the problem is limited to these cases.
