Transient Plasma Systems, Inc. develops, designs, and manufactures nanosecond pulsed power systems for application in industry and academia.

Plasma is used in industry for a variety of critical applications including treatment of surfaces, filtration, cleaning and coatings. However, its use has been limited by high energy demand and the need for vacuum chambers and specialized approaches. TPS uses nanosecond pulsed power to unlock previously inaccessible capabilities of plasma, making plasma solutions accessible to new industries and providing innovative solutions to the next generation of commercial challenges.
