FE8150 - Nonlinear Modelling and Remote Sensing

About

Lessons are not given in the academic year 2021/2022

Course content

FE8150 consists of 3 modules. The students choose two of the modules for in-depth focus, but must follow all modules in the course:

I   Nonlinear modelling and stability analysis

II  Advanced RF/microwave measurement techniques of linear and nonlinear components

III Radar Remote Sensing

 

I Nonlinear modelling and stability analysis

Course content

Calibration techniques, accuracy and repeatability in RF measurements. Measurements of linear and nonlinear components, both discrete and on wafer.  Waveform calibrations and analysis.  Microwave instrumentation.

Responsible: Morten Olavsbråten
