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
