Abstract : Light-activated solid-state opening switches are shown to be a viable approach for switching inductive circuits. Measured photoswitch performance indicates that light-activated opening switches have the power density ratings needed to develop compact inductive power systems.... High current opening switch, Solid state switches, Cryogenic silicon switches, Photoconductor switches.
