Abstract : We have built and tested a coaxial zipper that can be used at high voltages. This device is designed to convert the signal from a single-ended (unbalanced coaxial) high-voltage output of ultrawideband sources to a balanced configuration that can be radiated by a transverse electromagnetic (TEM) horn. A variety of low voltage measurements was performed, including time domain reflectometer (TDR) and field measurements. The field at large distances was estimated from the measured data.
