             abstract = "Nonlinear Transmission lines (NLTLs) have been studied for high 
                         power RF generation with good prospects of applications in 
                         telecommand systems of small satellites (Cubesats), pulse radars 
                         for remote sensing (SARs) and disruption of communications in 
                         battlefield, [1], [2] for instance. Usually NLTLs employ barium 
                         titanate (BT) ceramic-based capacitors or ferrite bead inductor as 
                         nonlinear elements, denominated as capacitive or inductive lines, 
                         respectively. On the other hand, a configuration that employs both 
                         nonlinear elements (LC), known as hybrid line, is an efficient 
                         approach for exciting soliton oscillations more easily than 
                         inductive or capacitive lines. Other interesting aspect is that 
                         numerous publications on NLTL with only one linear component are 
                         easily found in the literature whereas just a few on hybrid lines 
                         and only one considering line experimental tests. In view of that, 
                         in this work a 30-section hybrid NLTL built using inductors and 
                         capacitors of strong nonlinearity (2.2 nF BT ceramic capacitors 
                         and 10 \μH ferrite bead inductors) will be described. For 
                         the test, the line is fed by a negative input pump pulse generated 
                         by a 1 kV discharge of a 0.75 pF storage capacitor via a fast 50 
                         ns switching system composed by an IGBT switch and its gate 
                         circuit driver. In the hybrid line tests, the soliton generation 
                         packet obtained on the middle section had a frequency of the order 
                         33.0 MHz, peak power of 13.0 kW and voltage modulation depth (VMD) 
                         of around 700 V. For each single shot, approximately 10 RF cycles 
                         with small damping were noted. The main conclusion from this 
                         experiment is that with an improved proper design hybrid lumped 
                         NLTLs may be used to achieve RF in the range of 100-200 MHz.",
