Abstract:

This report is a compilation and summary of data, previously presented in numerous and disparate forums, that characterize the initial plasma parameters and conduction phase of the plasma erosion opening switch. The results verify the approximate values of the parameters used in modeling the switch and support the current controlled erosion switch theory.
