EL6713 Electromagnetic Theory and Applications

Course introduces Maxwell's equations, which underlie electromagnetic wave propagation. The properties of freely propagating plane waves are derived, as well as waves guided by structures, including various two-wire transmission lines, hollow waveguides, and dielectric waveguides. A unified treatment of wave propagation is given in terms of the transmission line representation with examples drawn from microwaves, integrated circuits and optics.

Prerequisites: graduate status and EE 3604.
