Abstract:

THE PROPOSED PROGRAM USES POLARIZATION REVERSAL ON FERROELECTRIC MATERIALS THAT YIELD CURRENT DENSITIES IN THE kA/cm2 RANGE. THE FAST CHANGE IN THE POLARIZATION VECTOR WITHIN THE MATERIAL RESULTS IN A TRANSITION THAT LIBERATES THE POLARIZATION INDUCED CHARGES (4 P) RESULTING IN A CURRENT PULSE LIMITED ONLY BY THE TRANSITION TIME AND SPACE CHARGE EFFECTS. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP THE TECHNOLOGY FOR MICROSECOND LONG PULSES. THE USE OF FERROELECTRIC MATERIAL AS THE A-K STRUCTURE SHOULD CONTROL PLASMA FORMATIONS THAT RESULT IN GAP CLOSURE.
