    Abstract

    We report on the results of analysis of propagation of an electron beam from a plasma-filled diode in the absence of the metal anode between the regions of beam generation and transportation. The diode parameters are 160 kA, 400 kV, and 50 GW. At a distance exceeding 10 cm behind the generation region, a beam current of 100 kA to the target and an energy density of 20 J/cm2 are attained for the beam cross-sectional area of about 200 cm2. The possibility of varying the beam current and energy density by changing the distance to the target is demonstrated.
