Hello I am a beginner on radio and also In speaking english. I hope you will understand what I say.
Let's say I have an impulse generator and the air gap breakdown. I am already able to see the impulse breakdown wave in my oscilloscope and it's has about 1.2 ns rise time.
I know that spark gap will radiated electromagnetic wave on a wideband of frequency.
1.Can I count or measure the wave on frequency domain? If I can, what is the tool that I need? Is it spectrum analyzer? Or oscilloscope can do that?
2.continue from Question 1, does the impulse breakdown wave that I see on my oscilloscope have a relation with the electromagnetic wave radiated from the spark gap? I see some equation that related to the rise time to measure a bandwidth, but Im do not sure what it is.
My goal is to design an antenna to detect the electromagnetic radiated by spark gap.
Once again, I hope you understand what I mean. And I am sorry if its a silly question since I really am a beginner and if you have a suggestion topic for me to learn the detail for your answer, I will really thankful! Hope you all have a great life!
