Further development of the Repetitive Series Interrupter, a hydrogen thyratron modified for opening-switch operation, is described. Deuterium is rejected as an alternative fill gas because of increased interrupting magnetic field requirements due to the greater inertial resistance of the heavier positive ions to the magnetic field-induced transverse diffusion. Modified magnetic field pulse shapes are explored, and an analysis of a positive column of weakly ionized hydrogen gas in a transverse magnetic field is presented. Author
