The factors affecting the thermal degradation of a single silicon field-emission pointed cathode during the take-off of the emission current are described experimentally. The results of the numerical modeling of the temperature dynamics of the field-emission cathode in conditions of the presence of a free interface between the liquid and solid phases allowing for the surface tension are described.
