Abstract

We are developing compact pulsed power systems for various defense missions. Although the system is primarily intended for pulsed radiography, its modularity makes it well suited for compact neutron sources for explosives detection and as an HPM driver for various DOD missions. To date, we have performed extensive research at the component level and are now pursuing the integration of the technology into a single accelerator cell. Cost is < $0.50/volt. As part of this effort, we are also pursuing advanced development of high specific energy dielectrics (>10J/cm3), specialized transmission line designs, HGI insulator technology, multi-gap low jitter (<1 ns) switches, and high voltage SiC photoconductive switching. We detail the progress of our overall research to date, recent high voltage test results, and the integration concept into a compact accelerator cell.
