Abstract
A novel structure comprising a number of identical ZnSe/GaAs double heterostructures arranged in series to form a photoconductive switch for high voltages and for high-power frozenwave generation is described. The GaAs front the separate heterostructures are the only components interconnected to form the series arrangement. The switch has low dark current, low onresistance and high switching efficiency. The output characteristics is controllable by external electronic circuitry.
