Abstract:

The report presents the progress made in a theoretical and experimental investigation of DC Triggered Spark Gap Switches for oversized rectangular waveguide. These switches which operate at atmospheric pressure employ a symmetrical arrangement of several spherical spark gaps in order to prevent the generation of higher order propagating modes. The results of a theoretical study of low pressure gaseous electronic switches is also presented which indicate that a Penning type discharge may have important advantages. Author
