Abstract

Results of experiments on the interaction of modulated heavy-current electron-pulse beams with plasma in a longitudinal magnetic field are presented. The plasma is formed by the beam itself. It is shown that under certain conditions the modulated electron beam interacts much more strongly with the plasma than an unmodulated beam. Longitudinal waves with a considerably greater electric field strength (some seven times) than in the absence of initial modulation are excited in the beam and the plasma. An explanation of the results is offered.
