Plasma Investigations


A theoretical method for the determination of an electric field near a paraboloidal metal (conducting) tip has been proposed. The accuracy of the proposed numerical solution has been analyzed. The dependence of the electric field strength at the tip vertex on the distance to the plane, which is applicable for predicting fields in various physical problems and engineering calculations, has been considered. The characteristic spatial distributions of the electric potential and field are presented.
