Abstract: One of the applications that use nanosecond and subnanosecond high voltage pulses is cancer therapy. In particular , non-thermal changes in the cells, especially the permeabilization of the membrane can be introduced using subnanosecond pulses. The motivation is to radiate intense subnanosecond pulses to the tumors non-invasively. Intense EM waves that is emitted at the first focal point is been focused at the second focal point where the target that is the tumor is present. Two antennas with PSR are designed to focus pulsed type field at the second focal point. The modified bicone antenna and elliptically tapered horn antenna as feeds for PSR is designed. Comparison of design parameters and radiation performance is done.
