Abstract : A metal oxide threshold switch (MOTS, e.g., NbO sub x, x preferably fractionally less than 2) series connected is used to sharpen the pulse rise to about one nanosecond, with a peak of thousands of volts, and up yo 100 amperes or more. A trigger pulse is used to further sharpen the pulse and reduce jitter. (Author)
