AB - Pulse compression is a method of increasing the peak power of the microwave pulse at the expense of its length. Over the years a number of pulse compressors had been demonstrated with some being bulky but efficient, like the binary pulse compressor and other being compact but less efficient, like SLED-II. An active pulse compressor had been proposed to increase the efficiency and compression ratio which relies on a high power active switch. Currently there are no practical switches that can work reliably with 100 s of megawatts of power. Most of the switches (ferroelectric, plasma-based, semiconductor) are limited by the breakdown strength of various dielectric inserts. In this paper we report on an active switch development which is based on a pure copper resonator and controlled by a single-side multipactor discharge at a metallic wall in the presence of a resonant DC magnetic field and a normal to metal rf field. The discharge is ignited by external rf power produced by inexpensive 2.45 GHz, 1-5 kW magnetrons.
