Conversion of dc energy to RF pulses may be accomplished by fast optoelectronic switching in semiconductors. A particular device is described and demonstrated involving the simultaneous activation of an array of silicon switches by a laser pulse. The resultant traveling wave is a short RF pulse burst whose waveshape is determined by the static voltage profile established in the device. The possibility exists for generating megawatt-level pulses at frequencies extending into the higher microwave bands.
