Abstract : An 'interrupter' switch was designed and fabricated for use with inductive energy storage devices in pulsed modulator applications. The storage inductor and related circuitry has also been designed keeping in mind the cooling techniques to be employed and the uses of the modulator system. The switch makes use of a low impedance liquid metal - metal contact during the conduction cycle and is opened by a pulsed magnetic field which physically moves the liquid metal away from the solid metal contact.
