A novel broadband antenna based on the resistively loaded V dipole is presented. For a given sensitivity and termination impedance, this antenna provides a broader bandwidth compared with the Wu-King dipole. A 30-cm monopole configuration with a 500-Ω commercially available probe as the termination is estimated to have a bandwidth of 20-10 GHz and sensitivity of 10.5 × 10-3 V/(Vm-1).This antenna can be used to measure electromagnetic pulses and transients with subnanosecond rise times. It can also be used as the receiving antenna in time-domain scattering edges.
