Abstract: The operation of a hollow-anode (HA) electron source with a biased output grid and an incorporated ferroelectric plasma source (FPS) in a diode powered by a 200 kV, 400 ns pulse is described. It was found that the FPS allows reliable ignition and sustaining of the HA discharge with current amplitude 11.2 M a n d pulse duration <2x s a t N, gas pressure of (l-3)x104 Torr. Parameters of the hollow-anode plasma were studied by different electrical, optical and spectroscopic diagnostics. It was found that the pla…
