    A theoretical model of cathode plasma behavior in a planar, high current, space-charge limited diode is presented. The model predicts the evolution of the cathode plasma to steady state when certain diode conditions are satisfied. This steady state corresponds to current extraction from a...

    A vacuum arc with a cold cathode bums rhythmically. The period of the rhythm is determined by a thermionic valve effect which occurs between the hot crater and the cold cathode as a result of the brief retention of the heat in the crater by the oppositely propagating electron flux.

    The cathode crater in a low-voltage cold-cathode vacuum arc is planar. The area of the crater and the density of the current flowing through it depend on the thermal and electrical properties of the cathode metal.

    The features of erosion of the surface of point field electron emitters bombarded by helium ions were studied. An analysis of the ion-bombardment-induced atomic-scale surface roughness showed evidence of a nondynamic character of the surface atom displacement for the primary ion energies below a...
