    Abstract

    The modern development of pulsed power generators with fast energy storage systems in the range of several megajoules makes it necessary to find conditions for charged particle beam formation with the same energy characteristics. Presently, the highest parameters of electron beams—E0 = 140 kJ—are obtained in coaxial diodes with magnetic insulation (Fig. 1(a)). However, even in these experiments the energy transport efficiency from a storage system into the beam was only ~ 20 percent. One of the main reasons for low efficiency is the breakdown in the diode transverse to the magnetic field.
