Abstract:

When studying the characteristics of a low-voltage, arc discharge in mercury vapors the phenomenon of the propagation of the plasma beyond the limits of the discharge anode was detected whereupon, by introducing additional acceleration, the conditions of propagation could be varied. The paper gives the results of a study which make this process and its characteristics more accurate for the use of this phenomenon during the formation of an electron flow in superhigh-frequency instruments with ion focusing.
