Abstract—The results of the development of a synchronization system (modulator) of two active elements based on copper bromide vapors are presented. The main features of its design and operation are described. The working capacity of the device was investigated in a master oscillator–power amplifier system (MOPA system), for which the amplification characteristic was obtained. The modulator formed trigger pulses with rise times of at most 100 ns that were fed to the grids of TGI1-1000-25 thyratrons. The time shift between the triggering of the thyratrons is adjusted using a variometer with a positioning accuracy of no worse than 1 ns. The maximum time shift between pulses is 55 ns and it can be increased via the use of additional cable delay lines.
