The principles of the creation of nontraditional electrophysical pumps are based on the sorption of the gases in a nonequilibrium thermodynamic state, in which the kinetic energy of the gaseous particles impinging on the surface significantly exceeds the thermal energy. The data presented show that condensed media can serve as effective sorbents of fast gaseous ions. A negative role is also played by the sharp decrease in the strength characteristics of hydride-forming metals as a result of hydrogen embrittlement. The fact that a membrane once cleaned maintains its properties during subsequent operation, even under the conditions of a “hydrocarbon” vacuum, is especially important. A similar principle underlies a device for the continuous pumping of oxygen. The phenomenology of the implantation and reflection of particles, stimulated desorption, sputtering, and other interaction processes of impinging particles with a condensed medium depends very weakly on their charge state.
