A coaxial spark gap triggered by a high-pressure CO2laser has been constructed. High-voltage pulses with subnanosecond rise time and very low jitter have been obtained. The observed low-laser energy threshold required to initiate switching suggests an application of the spark gap in controlling and manipulating high-intensity infrared radiation by electrooptic shutters.
