    Ions or ionized neutrals released from solid surfaces by electron beam impact can be accelerated and trapped in the beam potential causing beam disruption. Experiments have been performed on the DARHT-I accelerator (1.7 kA, 19.8 MeV, 60 ns) to study this phenomenon. The beam, focused to a range...
