Abstract
A review of recent progress in the development of the low-pressure (~27 Pa H2) glow discharge pulsed high-power (10~30kV) switch, the Back-Lighted Thyratron (BLT), is to be presented. The BLT operates with a glow discharge and utilizes a simple device geometry. New data on peak current capability, current rise rate, current reversal ability, life, repetition rate operation, and trigger efficiency and comparisons of delay and jitter with different trigger methods (flash-triggered, laser-triggered and electrically-triggered) are reported.
