Abstract

In this paper, we present a design approach of a single-line nanosecond pulse source by using a thorough analytical investigation and by verification with CST MICROWAVE STUDIO. Through detailed analysis and simulation, we arrive at a design for a fast rise time variable pulse duration pulse source which is able to produce 1–10 ns pulses with tens of kilovolt amplitude and less than hundreds of picoseconds rise time. This variable pulse duration is achieved by using telescopic antennas and ferrites in the pulse-forming line of the pulse source. Finally, we present a first implementation of a 5-ns pulse source with an oil spark gap for fast switching.
