We report efficient direct optoelectronic generation of sub-ps-THz pulses on 50 Ω coaxial transmission lines with a 330 μm diameter solid copper outer tube filled with Teflon containing the 80 μm diameter inner conductor. The transmitted pulses after propagating as much as 105 mm were measured at the end of the line with an optoelectronic antenna having sub-ps-time resolution. We observed low-loss, single transverse electromagnetic mode propagation with very little group velocity dispersion. The experimentally derived values for the frequency-dependent absorption are consistent with the theoretical predictions.

    The matrix of average power over frequency provided for each cable type is often used to evaluate the power capacity of transmission lines. There are two potential failure modes in cables also used to transmit high peak power. One is voltage breakdown; and the other is overheating. The major...
