Abstract : A low inductance gaseous switch tube has been designed and tested which permits high current (>150,000 amp) switching of power at potentials up to 20 kv without deterioration of electrodes due to current pinching. The switch is so designed that triggering is accomplished externally with very low (<0.1 micro sec) time jitter over a wide range (5 - 20 kv) of operating voltages. (Author)
