A Radiating Structure Incorporating an Extended Ground Plane and a Brewster Angle Window
The H-series of ultra wideband (UWB) pulsers is designed in a coaxial geometry. Therefore, in order to effectively radiate the energy, it is necessary to have a mode convertor and a non-dispersive radiating structure. This paper presents such a combination which was designed and built specifically for the H-3 high power ultra wideband source . It incorporates the Point Geometry Convertor (PGC) and a TEM horn with a Brewster angle window providing the oil to air interface.
