Abstract : A one-dimensional charge sheet model of an electron beam traveling through a diode and continuously creating electron and ion charge sheets within the diode is analyzed using a computej to follow the motions of the charges during the buildup time to a quasi-equilibjium condition. A step-by-step calculation of t;e self-consistent field of the charges of the beam and the plasma charges created by the beam is carried out in a
