Paper Abstract

In this paper the processes in the low arc current (less than 1 kA) on a cathode with moderate melting temperature are discussed. In this arc an anode typically plays a passive part, acting only as a collector of the microparticles, metal vapor, ion and electron flux, which are ejected into a gap from the cathode spot region.
