Ultra Short Pulse Propagation on Nonuniform Planar Transmission Lines
This paper presents a rigorous investigation of the propagation characteristics of short electric pulses on nonuniform planar transmission lines. For this purpose, frequency and time domain analyses are carried out by means of the Spectral Domain Approach and Fast Fourier Transform, respectively. This combined analysis shows if and how a pulse is distorted as it propagates down the nonuniform transmission line, and in consequence how the pulse distortion can be controlled through adjustments on the geometry of the transmission line. The results of this investigation find applications in high speed optoelectronics.
