Paper Abstract

A non-linear, tapered radial transmission line which combines the functions of energy storage and voltage gain was investigated. A photoconductively switched impulse generator with a tapered radial transmission line has resulted in a compact design with impedance transformation properties. The radial transmission line device has achieved narrow output pulsewidth as well as voltage gain, which are important properties for the generation of high peak power impulse S.
