Paper Abstract

An original design for electro-optical pulse shaping is presented, enabling the operation of programmable high voltage pulses with fast Pockels cell amplitude modulators. The basic idea is to make use of diode lasers together with photoconductors, inside a simple arrangement comprised of two resistivity coupled microstrip lines. We demonstrate a prototype with better than 200 ps a time resolution of more than 200 ps within 3.5 ns wide pulse, at apeak output voltage of 2 kilovolts and more than 50 dB amplitude dynamics.
