Title: Nonlinear transmission line high voltage pulse sharpening

Abstract

Some embodiments include a high voltage nonlinear transmission line that includes a high voltage input configured to receive electrical pulses having a first peak voltage that is greater than 5 kV having a first rise time; a plurality of circuit elements electrically coupled with ground, each of the plurality of circuit elements includes a resistor and a nonlinear semiconductor junction capacitance device; a plurality of inductors, at least one of the plurality of inductors is electrically coupled between two circuit elements of the plurality of circuit elements; and a high voltage output providing a second peak voltage with a second rise time that is faster than the first rise time.
