Characterization of a 1- mu s, 1-MA plasma erosion opening switch


Summary form only. Experiments have been carried out to characterize the conduction phase of the plasma erosion opening switch (PEOS) driven by a fused capacitor bank. Initial experiments with a PEOS cathode (anode) radius of 5 cm (8.9 cm) used magnetic probes to determine the PEOS current distribution and collimated, visible light detectors and Faraday… (More)
