To make the DEI pulser make a fast pulse on the EO shutter EOMs, we had to make sure:

1) the cable had a high voltage rated dielectric. cheap dielectrics show the 'corona'
effect, especially when there is a bend in the cable.

2) the EO has to have a resistor on it to prevent ringing due to the impedance mismatch.

3) We needed ~3.5 kV to get the EO shutter crystal to flip the light by 90 deg.
