Prereq: graduate standing and/or permission of the department
The course will cover principles of operation of microwave antennas, waveguides, amplifiers and couplers. Measurements of propagation will be made in homogeneous and disordered single mode and overmoded waveguides. These experiments will be carried out with use of a microwave vector network analyzer. Measurements will be controlled, collected and analyzed with use of the MATLAB programming language.
