A compact wideband antenna integrated with a pulse-forming line for transient pulse radiation is proposed in this paper. It can be used in the fields such as ultrawideband (UWB) radar, ground-penetrating radar, UWB communications, etc. This antenna is integrated with a solid-state switch and a planar Blumlein pulse-forming line. The dimension of the antenna is 300 mm × 300 mm × 3 mm. In the experiment, the switch was triggered by a laser with a wavelength of 1064 nm. The peak power of a single antenna was 14.45 MW when the applied voltage was 17 kV. A Gaussian doublet pulse with a duration of 1.5 ns and a peak-peak amplitude of 305.7 V/m at a distance of 2 m from the antenna along the main beam direction was recorded in the experiment. The measured waveform was in good agreement with the predicted one.
