The 'Gamma' microsecond accelerator of relativistic beams, which has a maximum energy of 2.8 MeV, is described. Tubular electron beams 6-12 cm in diameter with a current-pulse duration of 1-15 μsec and a stored energy of 30-140 kJ are produced. The coaxial diode, which has magnetic isolation and a sectional insulator, is supplied directly from a voltage-pulse generator. The efficiency of energy transfer from the generator to the beam is 20% for a potential of 2 MV on the diode.
