Abstract : The transient response of straight wires and circular loops when short pulses are applied is studied experimentally and theoretically. It is shown that the initial response is always that of an infinitely long antenna at a frequency near the upper limit of the frequencies contained in the pulse provided this is sufficiently short so that the first reflection from the end of the wire or loop is not superimposed on it.
