The potential induced on the surface of a nonconducting ceramic during irradiation by an electron beam in the forevacuum pressure range (5-15 Pa) remains negative, but its absolute value is much smaller than the energy of accelerated electrons. The factors affecting the negative potential of a nonconducting ceramic target are determined. The evolution of the charge injected in the ceramic is analyzed by a numerical simulation.
