Abstract:

A new circuit is described for the generation of current step functions of long duration, having a short risetime and yielding a large steady current. A typical set of values is duration 200 microsecond, risetime .6 microsecond, peak current 20 kiloamps, ripple 10. The risetime can be decreased at the expense of the current or, to some extent, at the cost of increased ripple. The duration or decay time is independent of the other parameters. Author
