In many electromagnetic applications, it is necessary to generate waveforms of high amplitude and of picoseconds duration. The present state of the art commercial equipment is capable of delivering 10 volt amplitude pulses of 70 picoseconds duration. In this paper, we present a method to produce pulses which are about a kilovolt in amplitude and hundreds of picoseconds in duration. This technology, capable of producing high amplitude narrow pulses is derived from laser research.
