The plasma accelerators are widely used for some powder and bulk (coatings) materials synthesis. Some metastable or high temperatures polymorphs require some special conditions for crystallization, for example ultra-high cooling rate. One of the possible ways to obtain these materials is the synthesis in a high speed plasma jet generating by a high current pulsed power plasma accelerator. The paper presents the results of experimental research concerning the development of a graphite barrel design of a high-current coaxial magnetoplasma accelerator. The developed design allows generating high-speed carbon electric discharge plasma jets with a pulse supply energy over 30 kJ by electrical power of about 140 MW.
