Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-187
Budget: 05/30/03 - 09/30/05

A high speed, high voltage, high current Photoconductive Semiconductor Switch (PCSS) was fabricated and tested during Phase I, demonstrating the switching of currents of up to 50 A at 1 kV for less than 10 nS, with on/off current switching ratios of 1011:1 and more. The Phase II project will build upon this success, with the goal of producing pa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-187
Budget: 05/02/02 - 02/02/03

Reliable optically activated, high gain semiconductor switches (PCSS) are being explored for multiple applications, including ground penetrating radar (GPR) and firing set switches. The ability of a PCSS to deliver fast risetime pulses suits them for their use in radars that rely on fast impulses. This type of direct time domain radar is uniqu...
