The micro-arc discharges during cathodic plasma electrolysis of refractory metals (Zr, Ti, Ta) are studied by means of optical emission spectroscopy. The fitting procedure based on three mutually shifted profiles is developed to analyze the complex line shape of Na I 568.64 nm and 615.86 nm doublets. Each profile includes effects of instrumental, Doppler, Stark, van der Waals and resonance broadening. The results show the existence of three discharge zones with electron number density values , and while those of sodium ground-state atoms are , and .
