Paper Abstract

The paper deals with ectons, emission centers produced on the surface of a cathode as a result of heating and explosion of its material due to large specific energy accumulated in cathode microvolumes. The criteria for the initiation and self-sustaining of ectons are given and their parameters and types are discussed.
