Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present the numerical simulation of the Be deposition phenomena using the Thermionic Vacuum Arc (TVA) method. The Be marker layer must be adherent to the substrate and compact to resemble bulk beryllium. Thermionic Vacuum Arc (TVA) is an externally heated cathode arc which can be established in high vacuum condition, in vapors of the anode material. The arc is ignited between a heated cathode provided with a Whenelt cylinder and the anode which is a crucible containing the material to be evaporated [1]. We have used the COMSOL software to simulate the Be deposition phenomena using the TVA method.
