Laser-Discharge Ceramic Capacitors are suited for gas lasers.

Press Release Summary:




Designed for circuits with high peak current and repetition rates, laser discharge ceramic capacitors use strontium-titanate based dielectric material, which exhibits negligible piezoelectric/electrostrictive effect. This allows capacitors to be used in high peak current/high shot life applications. Products offer low dielectric loss, resulting in low self-heating. High breakdown strength/permittivity of material allows for storage of high energy density per unit volume.

Morgan Electro Ceramics Offers High Voltage Laser Discharge Ceramic Capacitors



Designed for circuits with high peak current and repetition rates

Morgan Electro Ceramics (MEC), a leading manufacturer of electro ceramic material solutions, including high voltage and RF capacitors, microwave ceramics and piezoelectric ceramics, offer high voltage laser discharge ceramic capacitors. MEC's laser discharge capacitors provide superior functionality in circuits with high peak current and repetition rates, making them ideal for gas lasers, high energy pulsed power supplies, DC power supplies, lightning arrestors and X-ray power supplies.

MEC's laser discharge ceramic capacitor product range uses a strontium-titanate based dielectric material, which exhibits a negligible piezoelectric / electrostrictive effect. This allows the capacitors to be used in high peak current / high shot life applications, including those found in gas lasers and other high energy pulsed power systems.

MEC's laser discharge capacitors offer low dielectric loss resulting in low self-heating when used in high power / high repetition rate circuits. Additionally, the high breakdown strength / high permittivity of the material allows for storage of high energy density per unit volume. This high energy density is maintained over the rated working voltage and temperature range by the dielectric's low capacitance / voltage coefficient and low temperature coefficient.
