The paper presents the findings of an investigation on volt-ampere characteristics of the diode with explosive emission cathodes of different constructions (blade metal-dielectric (MD-cathode) and solid graphite cathodes) under the change of the anode-cathode gap in wide ranges. The investigations were carried out using the TEA-500 pulsed electron accelerator. The total current of the electron beam was measured using the Faraday cup (FC). A 0.5-mm foiled glass fiber laminate was used as an emitting edge of the cathode in the experimental study with the explosive emission blade MD-cathode. Based on the obtained results, the conclusion was made that the graphite cathode has the most effective efficiency factor.
