Abstract
This work is focused on identifying the tradeoffs associated with modifying Kymas existing photoconductive semiconductor switch (PCSS) technology in order to tailor the technology for applications of interest to the Air Force. The currently available PCSS devices were designed without any specific application in mind. Since there are inherent tradeoffs in terms of power handling, optical power requirements, size, and cost for the devices, it is possible that minor changes to the fabrication process, packaging, or implementation of the existing PCSS device will find utility within the AF in heretofore undiscovered application spaces.
