High Tc superconductor jitter-free-opening switches, made of YBCO films, with switching risetime of 100 ps and switching efficiency of 80% have been successfully demonstrated. The switches were used in an inductive energy storage pulsed power system (IESPPS). Ultrashort electrical pulses with pulse compression and peak power gain of 40 were obtained.
