Course content

This course focuses on that part of electronics associated with the microwave/millimeter-wave telecommunications, radars and remote sensing, computing, modern material technology, food industry, chemistry and medicine.Main attention is paid to teach the students the electromagnetic principles, analytical and numerical simulations, and design techniques for passive distributed components and their integrations.Among the studied components are the waveguides and integrated transmission lines, basic circuit elements, and microwave passive devices manufactured using different electronic technologies and used for many applications considered in this course. Students are getting practical skills in the simulation, design and measurements of passive integrated components using advanced circuit and electromagnetic design software tools, measurement equipment and a rich set of microwave components demonstrated and analyzed in class and research laboratory.

Learning outcome

Knowledges: The candidate has - detailed knowledge of the main principles of microwave techniques - knowledge about the main components and their parameters - knowledge about the main microwave technologies - good knowledge about the main design principles.
