Paper Abstract

A thin silicon wafer when illuminated by a Q-switched frequency doubled Nd-YAG laser is used as a very fast ultra-low loss,quasi-optical photo-conductive switch to cavity dump a millimetre-wave open resonator. Initial experiments indicate that itshould be possible to provide short pulses at millimetre-wave frequencies with power gains of several hundred.
