This paper presents the results of experiments on the generation of pulsed γ radiation of average photon energy ∼1.2 MeV and duration ≤ 20 ns on the MIG system with a plasma opening switch. Operating modes with a maximum dose downstream of the anode of (1-2)·10 13 and 10 12 R/s over an area of 2-3 and 100 cm 2 are obtained, respectively.
