Abstract : A reflex triode for use in producing ultra-high-current ( 100,000 A), ultra-highpower ( 10 to the 11th power W) ion beams includes an improved anode and an improved cathode and has a low inductance design. A cylindical anode stalk supporting the anode is positioned inside of and closely spaced from a cylindrical cathode shank which supports the cathode. Magnetic insulation allows for a close spacing between the anode stalk and cathode shank which reduces the inductance. The improved cathode is embedded in a cathode mount to reduce divergence of the ion beam. The improved anode consists of conducting concentric rings with thin film in the space between the rings to produce a more uniformly dense ion beam having low divergence. (Author)
