Abstract

An ultra-wideband radiation source based on the excitation of a 64-element array of combined antennas by a generator of bipolar voltage pulses with the length of 1 ns, amplitude of 200 kV and pulse repetition rate of 100 Hz has been designed and studied. The peak power of the voltage pulse was 3.2 GW. The effective potential of the ultra-wideband source radiation reached 4.3 MV.
