We report a phenomenon of pulsed electron beam generation in a low-pressure gas discharge device. The cathode of the device is of simple geometry without a hollow cavity that is employed in the transient hollow cathode discharge (THCD) devices. The discharge and beam characteristics are measured and found to be similar to that of THCDs such as pseudospark and channelspark.
