    We have constructed a nanosecond pulsed Xe lamp which is controllable by a small-sized, high-voltage semiconductor switch that is driven by a transistor-transistor-logic level external signal. The Xe lamp used here is commercially available and it is usually operated in a direct-current (dc)...
