The loss-free resistor (LFR) is a two-port network with a resistive input characteristic that transfers all the energy from the input to the output terminals. A novel LFR realization based on a transmission line, which we denoted as TLFR, is presented. The TLFR is suitable for the recycling of the energy of narrow, high-power, high-voltage pulses. Such pulses appear in some high-power lasers, such as the copper-vapor laser.
