Abstract
Accurate Automation Corporation proposes to develop a high power switch with a laser trigger to minimize pulse-to-pulse jitter. The switch will incorporate carbon nanotube electrodes for long life and high current capacity. The initial design of the switch will provide switching of up to 25 kV DC. The integral control of the switch will allow multiple switches to be triggered simultaneously or in a specific phased time sequence.
