Nanosecond high voltage generators

Montena technology develops repetitive high voltage pulsers for industrial and laboratory applications requiring nanosecond pulses, for example for plasma generation, electroporation or pulsed electric fields (nsPEF).

The applications are diverse in the fields of biotechnology, agri-food industry, dental and veterinary medicine, surface treatment, gas pollution control, and more.


  • replace chemical methods
  • ecology (gain of energy)
  • high productivity
  • allow precise dosage

Example of 10kV pulse waveform on a 50 ohm load

Typical applications
To promote the development of microorganisms (e.g. microalgae, cyanobacteria, etc.)
Plasma activated water (e.g. plant growth stimulation)
Gas pollution control / cleaning (e.g. CO2, etc.)
Cold plasma generation
Electroporation (permeabilisation of cell membranes through the application of electrical pulses)
Stimulation of heat-shock proteins
Tumor ablation with a non-thermal high voltage electric field
