Secondaryemission multiplication in a magnetically insulated discharge in a variable field
Abstract
A theoretical assessment is made of the possibility of achieving secondaryemission multiplication in a monotonically varying field in devices with a vacuum magnetically insulated discharge gap (e.g., magnetrons). The additional energy of returning electrons and the maximum value of multiplication are determined. Optimal conditions for achieving the maximum multiplication in simple symmetric devices are found. Finally, a calculation is made of the value and duration of a current pulse in the external circuit induced by secondaryemission multiplication of avalanche type.
