Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Basic knowledge in multivariable calculus and electromagnetic field theory

Syfte

The aim of the course is to enhance the student's insight into the physical concepts and principles used to describe the generation and detection of electromagnetic waves, and their propagation through different types of media.

The manipulation of electromagnetic waves in modern wireless and photonics components is highlighted. This course provides a basis for further studies in engineering branches, which rely heavily on the usage of electromagnetic waves (e.g. microwave engineering, photonics, electronic communication and remote sensing).

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)


  • Apply Maxwell's equations to analyse and solve wave propagation problems with simple boundary conditions and interpret the results.

  • Analyse the propagation of plane and paraxial electromagnetic waves through homogeneous and inhomogeneous lossy media, how the wave reflects/refracts at dielectric and conducting boundaries, and evaluate how the wave is affected by dispersion and scattering.

  • Describe the mechanism for propagation and reflection of voltage waves along transmission lines.

  • Explain what is meant by: characteristic impedance, wave impedance, complex index of refraction, Poynting vector, phase velocity, group velocity, dispersion, and scattering.

  • Perform calculations of blackbody radiation, and emission of waves by electric dipoles.

  • Perform calculations of scattering of waves (e.g. Rayleigh and Thompson).

  • Perform calculations on a two-level system (including stimulated emission, spontaneous emission, absorption, collisions).

  • Describe physical mechanisms for emission and absorption of electromagnetic waves, and methods to create and detect them.

  • Use computer tools to visualize electromagnetic field phenomena and design a hologram.

  • Describe the working principles of basic photonic and microwave components, which are based on wave phenomena.

  • Perform experimental work in the photonics and microwave areas.

  • Present clearly documentation of computer based work and summarize the experimental work in written form in English.

Innehåll
