Abstract
The Bistable Optically controlled Semiconductor Switch (BOSS) is currently the only completely controllable high power solid state switch which operates on sub-nanosecond to microsecond time scales. The present state of BOSS technology is discussed, including the present limits of operation and potential extensions of these limits. Current and novel applications which take best advantage of the BOSS performance characteristics are described.
