Title: Bi-triaxial photoconductive switch module

Abstract

Methods, systems, and devices describe bi-triaxial photoconductive switch modules that that eliminate the need for external DC blocking capacitors, while providing a highly compact structure that can produce bipolar output waveforms conducive to feeding to radio-frequency (RF) devices, such as antennas. Some implementations of the disclosed bi-triaxial photoconductive switch modules utilize unified cast-in-place capacitors that can be designed with an appropriate geometry, volume and orientation to provide desired energy storage capacity while eliminating or reducing parasitics.
