First patent for a coaxial cable

First patent for a coaxial cable

Coaxial cable is a type of electrical cable consisting of an inner conductor surrounded by a concentric conducting shield, with the two separated by a dielectric (insulating material). Many coaxial cables also have a protective outer sheath or jacket. The term coaxial refers to the inner conductor and the outer shield sharing a geometric axis.

First coaxial cable was patented on December 8, in 1880 by Oliver Heaviside.
