What is it about?

Vector inversion generators or spiral generators are compact, high voltage pulse generators consisting of a pair of conducting foils wound in a spiral and a switch. We developed an improved analytical model predicting the time evolution of the output voltage of such spiral generators.

Why is it important?

Our findings allow people interested in building such kind of generators to gain a huge amount of time by simply computing three parameters based on the geometry and the materials of their device. Based on these three parameters, it is possible to predict the amplitude of the first maximum and the first minimum of the output voltage waveform.
