IT3001 Microwave Engineering, Basic PhD Course 7.5 credits

Mikrovågsteknik, grundläggande doktorandkurs

The course corresponds to the undergraduate course IT2651 where approximately half of the textbook by Collin is treated. In this course, the same parts of Collin are studied but the examination in the form of home assignments and participation in three compulsory laboratories.

After the course the students should be able to:

- solve microwave design problems from (or with the same level of difficulty as given at) the end of chosen chapters of the textbook "Microwave Engineering" by R.E. Collin and "Problems Manual" by Urban Westergren: 1, 2.1-2.9, 3.1-3.9, 3.11, 3.17-3.19, 4.1-4.2, 4.5, 4.7-4.8, 5.1-5.3, 5.5-5.8, 5.9-5.13, 5.16, 6.1-6.10, 7.1-7.2, 7.3-7.5, 10.1-10.2, 10.4-10.5, 10.8-10.9, 10.12, 12.1-12.5, All appendices in the Problems Manual

- present and discuss results of microwave design problems in seminars
