Paper Abstract

The continuing development of optically controlled bulk high power semiconductor switches with sub-ns closure times and sub-ns synchronization has made the direct generation of microwave energy feasible. The object of this paper are to 1) describe two transmission line approaches for generation of multiple cycles of high power microwave energy using optically controlled switches 2) describe the optically controlled switch requirements for each approach 3) compare the point design performance of the above types of direct high power microwave generators and 4) draw several conclusions from this system study.
