Abstract : Growth of a cathode surface is one of the possible methods of increase in effectiveness of a thermal emission converter, since an increase in take-off current density is not accompanied by either increase in converter dimensions or in forcing its mode of operations. The report contains results of investigation of the characteristics of a single channel of a developed cathode in the Knudsen mode of operation. (Author)
