The report describes a high current solid-state pulser that has been developed to drive injection lasers for room-temperature operation. Two basic charging circuits are detailed, and the advantages and disadvantages of each are analyzed. The discharge circuit is described, and the factors in the discharge circuit which determine the peak current and pulse width are investigated. The performance of the various solid-state switching devices, silicon-controlled rectifiers SCRs, employed in the circuit is also discussed. Authors
