An electron source with a plasma emitter based on low-pressure arc discharge with a cold cathode is described. With an accelerating voltage of 300 kv in the single-pulse mode, a radially divergent electron beam with a current of 15 A, a duration of 100 mu sec, and an area of 1. 25 m**2 is produced and brought out to the atmosphere. The electron source is designed for excitation of high-pressure space discharge in switching devices.
