Miniaturization of electrical components along with growing superconductor technology requires a better understanding of the phenomenology of breakdown in liquid nitrogen. It is known that the time delay between breakdown-onset and final impedance-limited arc current can occur within a few nanoseconds. For a temporal resolution down to several 100 ps, a discharge apparatus is built and tested that uses a cable discharge into a coaxial system with axial discharge, and a load line to simulate a matched terminating impedance.
