|Catalog Data||ECEN 5114 (3). Waveguides and Transmission Lines. An intermediate-level fields course dealingwith guided-wave systems at HF, microwave and optical frequencies.Modern waveguiding structures, including circular metallic waveguides,microstrip transmission lines, and optical waveguides aretreated. Additional material may include: waveguide losses,excitation of waveguides, microwave network theory, coupled-modetheory, resonators, pulse propagaton in waveguides.|
|Credits and Design||3 credit hours. Elective course.|
|Prerequisite(s)||ECEN 3410, Electromagnetic Waves and Transmission|
|Course Objectives||This is an intermediate-level (senior/first-year graduate student) electromagnetic fields course dealing with the concepts of guided-wave system sat HF, microwave and optical frequencies. A fundamental understanding isaimed for rather than a "cookbook" approach to the subject.|
