    In realizing electro-magnetic launchers, one of key components is a switch that can transfer high energy to a load and also has a precise triggering capability. The pseudo-spark switch is a good candidate to such applications. Various designs of the pseudo-spark switch had been tested at different institutes for high-energy transfer, but not high enough to fulfill specifications of the launcher ex... View full abstract»

    Electroporation (EP) of biological cells is of increasing importance in the area of bio-technology. By applying external electric fields along biological cells in a water suspension the cytoplasm becomes polarized. The charge displacement in the cytoplasm and in the suspension leads to high transmembrane potentials in the order of several volts. The build-up of large irreversible openings in the c...

    In order to determine the electrical characteristics of water under high electric stress, we have measured the current-electric field (I-E) characteristics of distilled water with a resistivity of 200 kΩcm, up to electric field intensities of 1 MV/cm. The gap between a 1.7 mm diameter sphere and a plane stainless steel electrodes was varied between 50 μm to 400 μm. Voltage pulses with ... View full abstract»

    An automatic repetitive charging system of 100 kV and 2 A was developed. This paper describes its design and experiments. A three-phase L-C converter with constant-current was used to charging source and IGBTs (insulated gate bipolar transistor) was used to control stopping charge. PLC (programmable logical controller) as the central part in the control unit was adopted. More than one thousand dis... View full abstract»
