Ultrashort pulse laser-triggering of long gap high voltage switches
Laser-triggered high voltage switches need longer length and lifetime laser plasmas at controlled plasma densities in order to achieve optimal operational parameters (such as short runtime, low temporal jitter, and high voltage hold-off). We have approached the problem by considering ultrashort laser pulses of sub-picosecond duration for the high voltage trigger source. To this end, several laser plasma diagnostic techniques were employed to quantify the ionization and to determine methods fordoi:10.2172/1055914 fatcat:vd2ztf6ydffinf67pphcfrfesq
