Data is presented on the production of electron beams from a ferroelectric cathode at voltages of order 0.5 MV and current densities of order 100 A/cm2. In comparison with data at lower voltages, the beam current scales as the three-halves-power of the voltage. An interpretation of the voltage dependent scaling, based on the coupling of electrostatic energy from the ferroelectric to the gun, is presented
