A simple high-voltage high current spark gap with subnanosecond jitter triggered by femtosecond laser filamentation

Abstract : We describe a simple, sturdy, and reliable spark gap operating with air at atmospheric pressure and able to switch currents in excess of 10 kA with sub-nanosecond jitter. The spark gap is remotely triggered by a femtosecond laser filament.
