Nanocarbon material (Ugleron and Astralens) is used for the first time for the production of metal porous cathode (MPC). It can be assumed that its implementation in the MPC matrix can change the mechanism and rate of occurrence of three-phase reactions of formation of active elements and oxygen and, thereby, improve its emission properties. The new technology of manufacturing MPC is aimed at solving the problem of increasing the durability of electro vacuum devices - more than 100,000 hours. The obtained results are intended for use in technologies for manufacturing of electron sources for electro vacuum devices used in space communication and navigation systems. In addition, they can be useful for other areas of electronics that use a metal-porous thermal cathode as sources of electron emission.

There are manufactured models with the use of Ugleron and Astralens in a sponge and emission substance. A layout using Ugleron in the emission substance is tested for durability and currently has an operating time of 40,000 hours. A model with the use of Astralens and Ugleron in a sponge and emission substance respectively is tested for maximum current density. To date, it shows results comparable to the standard cathode. However, there is a suggestion that cathodes with Astralens and Ugleron have a lower evaporation rate of the active substance. There is predicted longer durability than for the standard cathode at the same emissivity.
