Design, Realization, and Experimental Test of a Coaxial Exponential Transmission Line Adaptor for a Half-Impulse Radiating Antenna

This paper describes the simulation, design, realization, and experimental test of a tapered transmission line (TL) for adapting a broad-band impulse generator to a radiating antenna, for a frequency range of 50 MHz-1 GHz. Two different taper geometries are considered and discussed in the analysis: exponential and logarithmic. Two analysis methods are also… CONTINUE READING
