Summary

This course is n introduction to microwaves and microwave passive circuits. A special attention is given to the introduction of the notion of distributed circuits and to the scattering matrix

Content

Introduction: Definition of the basic notions, applications: radar, communications, satellites, space probes, microwave ovens, atomic clocks, biological effects

Microwave networks: S-parameters and scattering matrix

Microwave circuits: Description of devices with 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Ferrite devices: The gyromagnetic effect, isolators, circulators, switches, llimiters, component insertion, filters

Device and signal measurements: Basic principles, reflectometry, vector network analyzer, attenuation and phaseshift, TDR. Calibration for error compensation and deembedding. Measurement of frequency and power.
