Abstract:

The report describes theoretical and experimental work on the development of a VHF high-power closed-ring spark transmitter, a device theoretically capable of producing gigawatt peak powers in the nanosecond pulse- length region. The investigation and the report were conveniently divided into three distinct, though interrelated, categories First, the theoretical aspects of transmitter performance second, an investigation of certain aspects of spark-gap performance germane to the entire undertaking finally, the construction and experimental evaluation of the complete transmitter.
