Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

  • decomposition of the fields and Maxwell's equations in isotropic media
  • analysis of propagating and evanescent TM-, TE- & TEM-modes in metallic hollow waveguides
  • hollow waveguides with rectangular and circular cross-sections
  • application of mode orthogonality at excitation from sources and at energy transport
  • the mode matching method to analyse scattering at discontinuities
  • analysis of attenuation of and coupling between waveguide modes
  • analysis of resonance cavities, orthogonality relations, losses and bandwidth
  • planar dielectric waveguides and optical fibres
  • analysis of the quasi-TEM modes in multiconductor systems

Intended learning outcomes *

Having passed the course, the student should be able to

  • demonstrate conceptual understanding and prove general principles of electromagnetic fields in waveguides

in order to be able to use the electromagnetic laws combined with mathematical methods to solve electromagnetic field problems.

To obtain higher grades, the student shall be able to

  • with progression in both completeness and width demonstrate skills in solving specific guided wave problems.

Transitional regulations *

Students course registered with the item TEN1 follow the new the course structure and the result on TEN1 corresponds then corresponds to the weighted result of PROA and TENA.

Ethical approach *

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
