Abstract : By using two or more series connected silicon controlled rectifiers a laser modulator is created which provides higher current, faster rise time and narrower pulses than can be provided by existing single or multiple silicon controlled rectifier circuits. In an example circuit using two such rectifiers, the first is gate triggered and the second is turned on by a rapid voltage increase across its anode and cathode. (Author)
