Abstract

This cable construction incorporates significant air fraction into the active dielectric cross-section of the cable, yet at the same time presenting a stable uniform cross-section with the center conductor centrally located in order to create and maintain an ideal overall geometry of a co-axial transmission line. The latter is important for Zo characteristic impedance control and stability. This significant fraction of air is beyond standard foam or porous dielectric material technologies.
