Information for research students about course offerings

The course is given when there is sufficient demand. Please contact the examiner if you are interested in taking the course.

Intended learning outcomes

After completion of the course the student shall be able to

  •  apply the decomposition technique on the fields and the Maxwell equations 
  • explain the concept waveguide mode, and analyse modes in metallic waveguides, cavity resonators, optical fibers and multiconductor transmission lines 
  • explain the concept of mode orthogonality, and apply it to waveguide analysis 
  • apply discrete and continuous spectral methods for analyzing mode coupling between waveguides, radiation from sources inside waveguides and from apertures in waveguide walls
