Abstract : This report discusses the mechanical details and some electrical properties of a Transverse Electromagnetic (TEM) cell, an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) generator and a terminating network. It is an implementation of a design described in detail in DREO Report No. 1084 (1991). The cell is primarily designed to generate the fast rise time (few ns) and high field levels (50 kV/m) associated with an EMP. However, it is fabricated in a modular format so that, for example, the high voltage pulse generator can be removed and replaced with an extended taper that will allow conventional EMC measurements to be performed. Such a format significantly increases the versatility of the cell.
