                         ions inside metallic tubes for many practical contemporary 
                         applications, both for industry and science. Therefore, stainless 
                         steel tubes with practical diameters of 4, 11 and 16 cm, but short 
                         lengths of 20 cm, were internally treated by nitrogen plasma 
                         immersion ion implantation (PIII). Different configurations as 
                         tube with lid in one of the ends or both sides open were tested 
                         for better PIII performance, in the case of smallest diameter 
                         tube. Among these PIII tests in tubes, using the 4 cm diameter one 
                         with a lid, it was possible to achieve tube temperatures of more 
                         than 700 C in 15 min and maintain it during the whole treatment 
                         time (typically 2 h). Samples made of different materials were 
                         placed at the interior of the tube, as the monitors for posterior 
                         analysis, and the tube was solely pulsed by high voltage pulser 
                         producing high voltage glow discharge and hollow cathode discharge 
                         both driven by a moderate power source. In this experiment, 
                         samples of SS 304, pure Ti, Ti6Al4V and Si were used for the tests 
                         of the above methods. Results on the analysis of the surface of 
                         these nitrogen PIII treated materials, as well as on their 
                         processing methods, are presented and discussed in the paper.",
