Some research has been done on making the compact, portable pulse forming line. A kind of ceramic and a kind of newly developed composite polymer are both used as the dielectric of the planar pulse forming line. The ceramic's dielectric constant ranges from 200 to 600 and the composite polymer's dielectric constant ranges from 100 to 200. It is easier to manufacture the large composite polymer dielectric bulks than to manufacture the ceramic bulks. In the experiments, using the large composite polymer bulk as the dielectric, the planar Blumlein line generated the pulse up to 100 kV with duration 90 ns. Using the ceramic bulk as the dielectric, the planar line generated the voltage pulse up to 60 kV with duration 92 ns.
