Abstract

A prolate spheroidal reflector was designed, manufactured, and attached to a bipolar former at the output of a 10-GW-Tesla-driven Blumlein pulsed power generator. The reflector, operated in water, is capable of producing intense pulsed electric fields of the order of 50 kV/cm. Constructional details are provided, together with experimental results, and a detailed analysis using 3-D software modeling of the reflector that provides results in good agreement with experimental data. \textcopyright 1973-2012 IEEE.
