Behörighet:

För kurser inom Chalmers utbildningsprogram gäller samma behörighetskrav som till de(t) program kursen ingår i.

Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Knowledge in circuit theory, analogue electronics, multivariable calculus, Fourier analysis, complex variables and functions, transmission line theory, electromagnetic wave theory.

Recommended courses are: Electromagnetic waves and components (RRY036); Högfrekvensteknik (EEM021); Wireless and Photonic systems engineering (SSY085).

Syfte

The aim of this course is to provide the foundation for microwave theory and techniques. Participants will learn how to analyse devices, circuits and structures that interact with electromagnetic fields and with dimensions comparable to a wavelength, or when wave propagation effects must be considered. The goal is to give participants the opportunity to design a basic passive microwave circuit, using modern CAD tools, and experimentally verify the design with modern microwave vector network analysers.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

-Analyse wave propagating properties of guided wave structures (TE, TM, TEM waves, microstrip, stripline, rectangular and circular waveguides, coupled lines)
-Apply N-port representations for analysing microwave circuits
-Apply the Smith chart to evaluate microwave networks
-Design and evaluate impedance matching networks
-Design, evaluate and characterise directional couplers and power dividers
-Design and analyse attenuators, phase shifters and resonators
-Explain basic properties of ferrite devices (circulators, isolators)

Innehåll

The course treats analysis and design methods of passive microwave circuits and components. Topics: Field analysis of guides waves on planar transmission lines and rectangular/circular waveguides, Scattering matrix, N-port representations, Foster¿s reactance theorem, excitation of waveguides, Smith Chart, impedance matching with reactive lumped elements / stubs, impedance transformers (Chebyshev, quarter wave), theory of small reflections, coupled lines, even-odd mode analysis, directional couplers, power dividers, attenuators, phase shifters, ferrite devices, resonators, and finally microwave measurement techniques.

The course contains three lab exercises (worth 1.5 university credit points):
-Design of a passive microwave component (branch line coupler)
-Microwave measurements with vector network analyser (VNA)
-Computer lab (3D EM simulation of waveguide structures)

Organisation

The course is organised around lectures, tutorials, experimental work and home assignments as follows:

-Lectures 28h
-Tutorials 28h
-Laboratory work 12h
-Home assignments

A half-day educational visit to a local microwave company is also provided.
