A 7 ohm water dielectric Blumlein generator having an open circuit voltage of 1 MV and a nominal pulse length of 50 nsec was built. The Blumlein pulse forming principle was chosen rather than a single charged line to achieve the 1 MV open circuit capability with only a 500 kV charge voltage. The pulse former could then be charged by the NRL type air core transformer driven by a D.C. capacitor bank.
