Abstract:

The report covers the development and application of Mylar striplines capable of producing currents in excess of 1 MA with pulse widths on the order of 50 nsec. The low-voltage line has a maximum operating voltage of 200 kV and a total impedance of 0.1 ohms. The high-voltage line can be operated up to 750 kV and has a total impedance of 1.8 ohms. Both lines use Mylar as the energy storage medium and are switched with solid dielectric switches. The low-voltage line drives a low-inductance diode that is used for the production of electron beams. The high-voltage line drives a double-sided diode with a line impedance of 3.6 ohms driving each side of the diode. The double-sided diode uses two opposing cathodes with a thin anode between them.
