To achieve the application of artificial plasma technology in high technology, the desorption behavior of cesium metals with low ionization characteristics in porous nickel is studied in this paper. The simulated results, which are consistent with the experimental desorption results, demonstrated that the liquid-phase rate of cesium gradually decreased along the axial direction and the distribution of liquid fraction exhibited a similar trend. The results that the removal efficiency reached above 95% provide a reference for studying the controllability of release of cesium metal and the adsorption and desorption of other alkaline-earth metal experiments with porous nickel.
