A new antenna having a receiving bandwidth from 20 MHzto 10 GHz is described. It is intended for the reception of very fast (subnanosecond) electromagnetic pulses and transients (single event or repetitive). The antenna is theoretically analyzed in the frequency do-main, using the Method of Moments. Frequency-domain receiving characteristics are calculated and numerical results are presented. The time-domain responses of the antenna to two very short incident electromagnetic pulses are calculated using the fast Fourier transform technique. The new antenna is potentially capable of receiving baseband electromagnetic pulses as short as 100 ps, without distorting the waveform.
