A bipolar Blumlein former has been designed and successfully implemented as an extension to an existing 10-GW-Tesla-driven Blumlein pulsed power generator. The new system is capable of generating a voltage impulse with a peak-to-peak value reaching 650 kV and having a high-frequency limit of the bandwidth well in excess of 1 GHz. Constructional details are provided, together with experimental results and analysis using the 3-D software modeling of the bipolar former that provides the results in good agreement with experimental data.
