The course will introduce three basic building blocks of microwave engineering viz. microwave transmission system, passive circuit components at microwave frequency and microwave active devices. The lectures would try to emphasize the need to understand the blocks in somewhat detail so that key design concepts behind a microwave network are grasped. The course would lay the foundation for further exploring the vast area of microwave engineering analysis and design.
Week 1: Model of microwave transmission Week 2: Analysis of microwave transmission systems Week 3: Passive circuit components Week 4: Active microwave devices
