This proposal addresses the problem of PCSS/laser trigger integration using a single monolithic laser diode array, thus simplifying the entire optical delivery network necessary for efficient operation of PCSSs. The proposal constitutes a logical continuation of Phase I effort where the main focus was on the detailed design of the PCSS/laser diode array (LDA) integrated architecture. In Phase II we will fabricate a prototype high-gain, high-power integrated PCSS/laser diode array module paving a way to an ultimate PCSS/LDA package capable of holding off of at least 40kV and having multiple filaments (channels) with total current exceeding many 1 kA.
