At first glance the book's title looks somewhat unusual because all of us, the scientists engaged in this field of physics, has got used to the term "vacuum arc", specifying the arc type by some additional words. It seems that the author uses the term "cathodic arc" to stress that we are dealing with a vacuum arc (or an arc in a low-pressure working gas) during which the working medium is supplied to the discharge gap only by cathode spots. The plasma flow produced from this conducting medium is transferred through a plasma-optical system, which eliminates macroparticles, and eventually it settles on a substrate to form a cathode material coating. I believe that there are all grounds to accept the term "cathodic arc" because it simplifies the description of the phenomenon by treating it as a sequence of events from the initiation of cathode spots and generation of cathode plasma to the settlement of cathode plasma ions on the substrate. This is exactly what the author has done by considering the whole sequence of events from both the physical and the technical viewpoint. This consideration is preceded by a detailed more than two-century background of this problem.
In my opinion, the book is a contemporary encyclopedia in the physics, engineering, and technology of vacuum (cathodic) arcs and in their use for coating deposition to which the author has made a great contribution. The appearance of this book is an important step toward the advance in high current vacuum electronics and in its up-to-date technological applications. I should like to wish the author further advances in his research work.
