Could the boron be evaporated in an arc in a side tube, and the plasma sucked in by the vacuum?

After filling with a weakly ionized Boron plasma, could introducing hydrogen then result in the boron and hydrogen separating into concentric spheres in the fusor, the B11 being more massive, staying in the center and the hydrogen blanketing it?
