Abstract

Fast, low jitter command triggered switching is key to the successful implementation of the dielectric wall accelerator (DWA). We are studying a UV induced vacuum surface flashover switch for this purpose. We present our initial data using a Nd:YAG (λ=1.06 nm) laser incident onto a high gradient insulator surface at 1ω, 2ω, 3ω, and 4ω. Best 1 σ jitter was <1 ns with no degradation of the switch after 500 shots.
