Paper Abstract

Over the last few years new technologies for the production of fast, high voltage pulses have emerged. The production of kilovolt amplitude pulses has long been a requirement for many high speed camera systems and the appearance of convenient and fast bench top pulsers has greatly sped up shutter tube development in the last two to three years. Although suitable electrical pulses have been produced for some time by large facilities such as electron LINACs and laser driven photoconductive switches, the ability to tinker on the bench top, away from the constraints of a large system, has allowed several new shuttering schemes to progress very rapidly.
