Abstract : The technology of short (less than 10(exp -8 s)) pulse generation is limited, as a rule, by availability of switching devices (closing or opening switches). The most promising devices are semiconductor devices, but until last years the power of semiconductor devices have been far lower, than the power of gas-discharge gaps or magnetic compressing cells. In the last decade, a promising trend connected with the appearance of high-power, super fast semiconductor devices has arisen. The devices operation is based on recently discovered physical effects: superfast recovery of high voltage diodes, and delayed "overvoltaged" breakdown.
