Physical processes in an open discharge that are responsible for high efficiency of electron beam generation are studied. It is shown that effective e-beam generation is due to electron emission under conditions of UV irradiation and significant field distortion in an accelerating gap with simultaneous suppression of electron multiplication processes. The 99.8% practical efficiency of e-beam generation is achieved.
