Abstract:

The study deals with the gradual development of an arc-type discharge in cesium vapor in a short diode with an interelectrode space of 1.9 cm and an incandescent tungsten cathode. The probe procedure is used to define the interelectrode distribution of the plasma parameters for the three successive forms of its existence 1 with a luminous film on the anode, 2 with a luminous sphere, and 3 with a cathode glow. It appears that the properties of such a discharge depend to a considerable extent on the point of generation of positive ions in the narrow interelectrode space. Author
