The recent increase in modular pulsed power systems has amplified the potential of optically controlled discharges where stringent synchronization or precise timing is required. This interest had led to new switching applications and concepts as well as new understanding of the switching process from a fundamental standpoint. The increasing diversity of wavelengths available has necessitated a modification wavelengths available has necessitated a modification. Advances in high time resolution diagnostics techniques have as well allowed a deeper insight into heretofore conjectured mechanisms.
