Paper Abstract

Comparative characteristics of the cathode processes in the discharge with electrodes of pure metal and of CuCr composition are presented. The effect of the gap, electrode shape and other geometric factors on the cathode spots dynamics is investigated. The accomplished investigations allowed the elaborate methods to influence the cathode spot dynamics by geometric factors.
