Two magnetically insulated gas-puff diodes were tested. In one design the plasma source was a fast inductive coil; in the other a coaxial gun created the plasma. The plasma current density from both sources, as well as the accelerated beam from each, was comparable to the Child-Langmuir limit of ∼10 A/cm2.
