Ceramic Caps Absorb Laser Discharge

Groomed for circuits with high peak currents and repetition rates, the company's ceramic, high-voltage laser-discharge capacitors are suitable for use with gas lasers, dc and pulsed power supplies, lightning arrestors, and X-ray power supplies. The components rely on a strontium-titanate based dielectric material, said to exhibit negligible piezo- electric and electrostrictive effects. Additionally, the material reportedly exhibits high breakdown strength and high permittivity that allows for high-energy storage per unit volume. Energy density is maintained over the rated working voltage and temperature range by the dielectric’s low capacitance, voltage, and temperature coefficients.
