Abstract:

This document describes an inductive intense beam source utilizing a plurality of fuses or a cylindrical foil surrounding a plasma column. The fuses or foil carry a current and thus establish an inductive energy storage volume therearound which is segregated from the plasma column. When the fuses or foil are vaporized, the energy stored therearound is converted to kinetic energy in the form of an accelorated particle beam. Author
