Abstract

Optoelectronic techniques for generating extremely short electromagnetic transients are reviewed with emphasis on the fundamental properties of photoconducting and electro-optic materials. Circuit considerations will also be discussed, including the use of radiative methods such as the electro-optic Cherenkov effect and photoconducting Hertzian dipoles.
