Separate studies were carried out when the plasma cathode was not turned on. However, the accelerating voltage was present; therefore, it cannot be said that the beam was completely absent. Secondary emission created a beam from the emission grid. It is from the distribution of the energy density of this beam that the distribution of the plasma concentration from the anode discharge near the emission grid can be estimated. And, unfortunately, it is significantly heterogeneous. It has a pronounced maximum on the axis. At 15kV in the center and at a diameter of 8mm, the energy density differs by 1.6 times, at 17kV by almost 3 times, and at 20kV by only 10%.
