The Progress of SBIR Supported R&D of Solid State Pulse Modulators

Ronald F. Koontz

The Small Business Innovative Research grant program funded by the US Department of Energy makes a number of awards each year for R&D in the field of accelerator technology including high power pulse modulators and their components. This paper will outline program requirements, and review some of the awards made in the last three years in support of high power modulator systems and solid state switching. Some results from previous and ongoing award programs will be presented if the principal reseacher is not present at the workshop. A number of award recipients will be in attendance, and will separately present their own results.
