Abstract

Present the results of numerical simulation of the formation of a crater on the surface of the cathode during the explosion of micro tip. The simulation was performed using the two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic program, which used wide-range equation of state and the table of conductivity of the metal, based on experimental data. It is shown that the electric explosion of micro tip with parameters typical unit ecton may form on the cathode surface of the crater with a radius of a few microns.
