hours' won't be in room 005 untill next week (09/29 - 10/03), this week
you can find me in room 322, which is in Packard building - 3rd floor.
general flow of the course is Application - System
- Component; individual components are analyzed
by Fields - Modes
- Equivalent Network. The course proceeds from
a review of microwave systems to analysis and
synthesis of passive microwave components, then
to active, nonreciprocal
and nonlinear microwave components.
of microwaves(terrestrial and satellite communications, radar, remote sensing,
wireless), system requirements for elements which must be analyzed and synthesized.
Propagations modes(TEM, TE, TM, quasi-TEM), attenuation and dispersion of
general guidelines. Modeling of discontinuities and junctions using S-parameter
matrix. Analysis of circuit components(impedance transformers, directional
couplers, hybrids, circulators, filters, solid state mixers, amplifiers and
oscillators) and MIC structures(microstrip. coplanar waveguide, slotline,
finline, and imageline). Microwave computer-aided design examples. Prerequisites:
EE142 or equivalent.
