Abstract

The design and performance of an avalanche transistor switchout are described. The device selects a single pulse from a train of cw or Q-switched mode-locked pulses and introduces less than ±1% amplitude variation in the selected pulse. The prepulse rejection ratio exceeds 107, and a lifetime of greater than 107 shots has been achieved.
