Under proper initial conditions, the interrelated effects of phase and attenuation dispersion in ultrawideband pulse propagation modify the input pulse into precursor fields. Because of their minimal decay in a given dispersive medium, precursor-type pulses possess optimal penetration into that material at the frequency-chirped Lambert-Beer’s law limit, making them ideally suited for remote sensing and medical imaging.
