The paper presents the results of calculation and optimization of a structure of a radial insulating magnetic field in an acceleration gap of a high-power ion diode. A diode configuration with an induction plasma source and an anode configuration with azimuthally symmetrical slots and a pair of cathode coils of a magnetic diode system have been studied. When the size of the slots is ≤5 mm and codirectional magnetic fields of a diode and shock induction coil, the perturbation of the B-field does not exceed ≤20% and is located in the region near the anode. In this condition, the topology of the magnetic field D' = f(1/r) is maintained in the acceleration gap. It was shown that the required radial distribution of the B-field can be optimized by varying the anode profile in the region opposite to two cathode coils of the diode magnetic system.
