Paper Abstract

A method for preliminary treatment of electrodes by a microsecond low-energy intense electron beam is proposed. It has been demonstrated that such a beam melts off the electrode surface and cleans the surface layers from impurities and dissolved gases. In combination with subsequent conditioning of the vacuum gap by low-current pulsed discharges, high breakdown electric fields can be attained.
