Paper Abstract

Hollow-cathode glow discharge, which operates at gaa pressures as low as those corresponding to a vacuum regime with \ d, where ) is the free path leugth of electron, d is the Bize of a cavity, 18used in electron and ion beam sources with plasma emitter.' However, a signilIcant difference in value between igniting and operating discharge voltages motivates the use of special systems for discharge ignition. Such systems, operating under increased preaurcs as compared to the preesure in the hollow cathode or using a high voltage ignition pulses, complicate source design and its electric power supplies.
