Abstract:

Recovery of pulsed electron beam diodes operating in the 50 Asq cm range has been studied using an inductive storage source producing two 100-200 kV pulses with separation ranging from about 10-500 microsec. The diode cannot instantaneously support a second voltage pulse because of the effective short circuit provided by the interelectrode plasma associated with the first pulse. After a period of about 100 microsec, the voltage applied to the diode is not short-circuited and a second electron beam, nearly identical to the first, is formed.
