Abstract
A HIGH VOLTAGE PULSE GENERATOR TECHNOLOGY IS BEING DEVELOPEDFOR PRACTICAL BEAM ACCELERATORS, PULSED X-RAY SOURCES AND OTHER PULSE POWER APPLICATIONS. THE SPECIFIC TECHNOLOGYCAPABILITY IS SHORT PULSE WIDTH (10-250 NSEC), HIGH VOLTAGE PULSE (1 MV AND ABOVE) DELIVERED AT A HIGH REPETITION RATE (1 MHZ AND ABOVE). IN THIS PROGRAM THE TECHNOLOGY PERFORMANCE IS BEING INVESTIGATED AND A SMALL SCALE PROOF OF PRINCIPLE PULSE GENERATOR IS BEING BUILT AND TESTED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT. THIS PROGRAM WILL LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR DEVELOPING AND TESTING A HIGH VOLTAGE (250-1,000 KV) REPETITIVE (1-10 MHZ) PULSE GENERATOR IN A LATER EFFORT. THE TECHNOLOGY, WHEN SUCCESSFUL, WOULD RESULT IN A NEW GENERATION OF HIGH VOLTAGE REPETITIVE PULSE GENERATORS, INCLUDING PULSE GENERATORS FOR COMMERCIAL LASER SYSTEMS AND MEDICAL ACCELERATORS.
