Established methods include arc discharge, laser ablation or pulsed laser vaporization (PLV), chemical vapor deposition and gas phase processes, such as high-pressure carbon monoxide (HiPCO).
Simultaneously with evaporation by the electron beam of substances from the molten pool by means of the annular electrode the arc discharge is excited (voltage about 50 V, current up to 100 A) in the vapor flow between the electrode and the pool surface, and to the substrate negative electric potential (bias) up to 500 V is fed.
Even provided issue of arc discharge stabilization and compression is solved, it is required for stable diffusion conditions of operation of watercooled anode that such parameters as current, arc length and diameter of anode be in a certain optimal area of their interrelations.
