We describe an academic research program designed to investigate fundamental issues that will impact future pulsed power technology. The project is intended to enhance the scientific footing for pulsed power, and to address issues in the development of compact, repetitive pulsed power. These include physics issues implicit in switch development, including both solid state and gas-phase, pulse generation at various levels from extremely small for fast high field generation to >100kV, and applications including ignition of jet fuels and biological response to electric fields.
