Mathematical models of thermal and erosion processes in the thermally insulated target of a magnetron sputtering system are constructed. With their help, the special features of forming the emission flux of atoms from the surface of the target whose material experiences first order phase transformations are obtained. The influence of the power density deposited into the magnetron discharge is investigated, the inhomogeneity of its distribution over the target surface is considered, and the special features of atom emission in pulsed-periodic plasma generation regimes are studied. The efficiency of the models is confirmed by a comparison of the calculated results with experimental measurements.
