ABSTRACT
Results are presented from experimental studies of the influence of the longitudinal magnetic field in the accelerating gap on the emission current, accelerating voltage, and maximum gas pressure in a plasma electron source generating a continuous electron beam in the forevacuum pressure range. It is shown that the magnetic field in the beam-formation region stabilizes the emitting boundary of the plasma in the accelerating gap, thereby considerably improving the source parameters.
