Abstract : This document describes an inductive intense beam source utilizing a plurality of fuses (or a cylindrical foil) surrounding a plasma column. The fuses (or foil) carry a current and thus establish an inductive energy storage volume therearound which is segregated from the plasma column. When the fuses or foil are vaporized, the energy stored therearound is converted to kinetic energy in the form of an accelorated particle beam. (Author)
