The development of high current particle accelerators powered by modulated intense relativistic electron beams is addressed in this paper. It is shown that when a modulated electron beam of power ≥109 W traverses metallic structures it leaves behind an electromagnetic field which generates a voltage gradient >=100 MV/m along a path through which electrons or ions can be accelerated.
