AB - Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI) has designed, built, and demonstrated a prototype pulse amplifier for stripline kicker service capable of less than 5 ns rise and fall times, 5 to 90 ns pulse lengths, peak power greater than 13.7 MW at pulse repetition rates exceeding 100 kHz, and measured jitter under 100 ps. The resulting pulse is precise and repeatable, and will be of great interest to accelerator facilities requiring electromagnetic kickers. The pulse generator is based on the original specifications for the NGLS fast deflector. DTI's planar inductive adder configuration uses compensated-silicon power transistors in low inductance leadless packages with a novel charge-pump gate drive to achieve unmatched performance. The unit was brought to LBNL, compared with other researcher's efforts, and was judged very favorably. A number of development prototypes have been constructed and tested, including a successful 18.7 kV, 749 A unit. The modularity of this design will enable configuration of systems to a wide range of potential applications in both kickers and other high speed requirements, including high performance radars, directed energy systems, and excimer lasers.
