This paper refers on experimental investigations of the conductive surface treatment by applying electric discharges in impulse. We have particularly focused on the modifications of metal surface micro-geometry that leads to formation of Taylor cone shaped asperities. We have established and presented the best energetic conditions of extracting the latter from cylindrical and flat pieces made of W+10 % Re by electrical discharges in impulse. The process of extraction of cones was followed by formation of oxide nano-films. Next research is oriented on chemical analysis of oxide nano-films on the Taylor cone surfaces.
