Paper Abstract

Generation of waveforms utilizing photoconductive switches and striplines has been analyzed for three circuit categories; parallel switching circuits, series switching circuits and passive waveform shaping circuits. The first two circuits utilize multiple switches to synthesize a waveform whereas the latter circuit contains a single switch in conjunction with a passive stripline circuit to generate a waveform. The properties of real switches impose practical limitations on these circuits which, in some cases, can be severe.
