The results of an experimental investigation of the operation of an electrode in argon containing 0.15% of potassium at temperatures from 1400 to 1800 °C and a pressure of 1 atmosphere when the gas and the electrode are in thermal equilibrium are presented. The current-voltage characteristics obtained are compared with the theory of electrode processes developed previously [1, 2]. Good agreement is obtained between the theoretical and experimental data.
