Ion diode

Ion diode

(Science: radiobiology) device for producing and accelerating ion beams for light ion drivers for inertial confinement fusion.

ions are produced in an anode plasma, extracted as space-charge-limited ion flow, and accelerated to the cathode, composed of a confined electron swarm, by an applied electric field. Millions of amperes of current at millions of volts have been produced this way.
