The paper presents the results of the experimental investigation of pulsed electron beam propagation with a varying current density (electron energy E e=350-400keV; total current of a diode Ie up to 11kA; (half-amplitude) pulse duration t=60ns, pulse energy We up to 120J) in two- and three-component gas compositions used in the pulsed plasma chemical synthesis of nanosized oxides. The mean value of the specific absorbed energy within the zone of pulsed electron beam propagation with a current density of 0.05-0.06kA/cm2 in gas compositions has been determined.
