An investigation was made of the time, mass, and energy characteristics of the collective acceleration of ions in a vacuum diode. Acceleration of ions was observed only with the presence of surges on the osciliogram of the current density. The maximal energies of the ions in axial and radial directions are equal and depend on the multiplicity of the charge. It is shown that ions of the near-cathode plasma are drawn into acceleration conditions.
