The erosion coefficients of W-Cu composites, tungsten, and copper are determined experimentally for conditions simulating plasma collapse, with a mean hydrogen-particle energy of around 2 keV. The microrelief variation of the composite surface under the action of single and repeated plasma pulses of length 15-20 μsec is investigated, with a heat-flux density of (5-7)·106 W/cm2.
The behaviour of sandwich structures of cold cathodes has been studied in a glow discharge. The differences in the behaviour of the cold-cathode composite structures under the action of a glow discharge in a helium-neon mixture are discussed.
We propose a method for designing transversely illuminated traveling-wave microwave devices. Devices of this type produce a uniform 3D temperature distribution in a polymer-composite rod. We describe theoretical and experimental results from studies of the 3D temperature distribution in the rod, along with the advantages of microwave curing technology over traditional curing techniques for polymer composites.
