We describe coherent microwave transient spectroscopy experiments using picosecond optoelectronic integrated antennas. The effectiveness of the experimental setup for the measurement of the loss and dispersion properties of materials in the 10–125 GHz range is characterized using microwave filters of predictable behavior. We also present measurements of the absorption coefficient and refractive index of fused silica over this frequency band.
