Paper Abstract

In this article different experiments are carried out to exam some key elements that influence the performance of PCSS (Photoconductive semiconductor switches). The experiments include the bias voltage over the switch, the trigger pulse energy and position. From the results we got the relationship among the elements and the output impulses. The bias voltage controls the output linearly; the rise of trigger energy increase the export voltage but when the energy get over 280μJ this trend slow down and the export voltage go to a fixed value; different positions change the export voltage and the peak value appears at the area near the cathode. The results were analyzed and explanations were given. From the discussion we give the evidences in helping to explain the linear mode, and point out an efficient way to use the laser energy for PCSS. Some tests methods are introduced and will be done in the future.
