Paper Abstract

We provide here an update on the status of ferratron development. The ferratron is a high-voltage, fast risetime, gas switch with low-jitter and high repetition rate. It is triggered by the emission of electrons from a ferroelectric device. It may be suitable for phased arrays due to it's low jitter. We have designed and built a test chamber for measuring the output of the ferratron. The test chamber is designed to launch a fast-risetime wave into an electrically large coaxial structure.
