Abstract : The patent describes a solid state pulse generator that produces high current narrow pulses and includes a bank of parallel silicon controlled rectifier-capacitor combinations, designed for driving a gallium arsenide diode laser. A trigger circuit is connected to all the gate circuits of the silicon controlled rectifiers, through separate adjustable resistors. The adjustable resistors make it possible to simultaneously fire the silicon controlled rectifiers with a single trigger pulse.
