Abstract: 
The advantages of on-demand pulse charging of high-voltage (HV) capacitors are discussed, highlighted by use of the technique to reduce the pulse width of a nitrogen laser to subnanosecond. Pulse charging reduces the HV stress on the capacitor dielectric resulting in a more compact laser reducing the discharge time of the laser strip-line capacitor. The HV pulse for charging is produced by switching a low-voltage capacitor via a step-up coil into the HV strip-line capacitor which is then immediately discharged. The system reduces the on-charge duty cycle to below 0.001.
