Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Basic knowledge of electromagnetic field theory.

Aim

The aim of this course is to give a basic description and understanding of high frequency electromagnetic wave phenomena as they occur in modern applications as e g fibre optics, laser and microwave techniques and microelectronics.

Goal

The students should learn to apply Maxwell's electromagnetic theory to solve electromagnetic problems which are closely connected to applications and research within this area. The students should get a broad theoretical understanding which they can later apply to specific applications (e.g. in photonics, microelectronics etc).

Content

Part A:
Transmission lines; stationary and transient situations, the Smith diagram.
Wave guides: rectangular, circular and
dielectric waveguides. Resonant cavities.
Antennas; dipole and group antennas, radiation diagram, effective antenna area.

Part B:
(i) Propagation of light pulses in optical fibres, dispersion, transmission
capacity, high bit rate optical communication, dispersion compensation,
soliton transmission systems.

(ii) High frequency electronics, two port analysis, stability, noise, microwave transistors.
