The article presents information on a study conducted on Vavilov-Cherenkov radiation (VCR) from high-energy runaway electrons (REs) generated by an electric discharge. It states that a high-voltage pulse with a subnanosecond front results in overvoltages on a gas-discharge diode in the open atmosphere, which develops a discharge with an energy of hundreds of kiloelectron volts.
