Abstract

The formation of a fast electron beam in a coaxial gas diode is simulated using the OOPIC Pro particle-in-cell code under the assumption of unlimited cathode emissivity. It is shown that fast electrons are generated near the cathode. The so-called "contracting-capacitor" mechanism of electron acceleration does not operate in the parameter range under study, because the boundary of the dense plasma is spread out due to preionization of the electrode gap by fast electrons.
