Gas-discharge closing switches are still the main option for pulsed-power systems where high hold-off voltage and high-power handling capabilities are required. One property of the switch that often is of great importance is the precision in time when the switch is to be closed. This review is a survey of existing gas-discharge closing switches, and in particular of their switching time jitter.
