Attenuators for Pulsed Power
Pulsed power applications present a unique set of thermal problems. Frequent cycling of power can cause materials to expand rapidly, sometimes with destructive effects.

By closely matching the Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) of adjoining materials, catastophic failures can be eliminated.

To minimize CTE mismatch and increase thermal conductivity, a Gold-Germanium eutectic is used to bond the BeO to the flange. To further minimize CTE mismatch, a Copper-Tungsten flange is used.

The Gold-Germanium layer is chemically compatible with the Gold plated ajoining layers, and no embittling metallics will form. The Gold matrix exhibits outstanding ductility, corrosion resistance, low diffusivity and low toxicity, as opposed to lead.

Below are Barry Industries' Copper Tungsten flanged attenuator. Engineers are welcome to 
contact us and we will design a Copper Tungsten flanged attenuator to your exact specifications.

General Notes:

• All power ratings assume an operating flange temperature of 100°C

• Mechanical tolerance is ±0.010" unless otherwise noted

• Minimum lead length on all devices is 0.125"

• Individual drawings available upon request

• Power ratings over 100W are available by contacting the factory

• Other configurations available, custom requests are welcome
