EE4620 Spectral domain methods in electromagnetics

Topics: Antenna Imaging, Antennas in reception, Fourier Optics, Connected Array Antennas, Artificial dielectric materials

The course covers the following topics:

  1. Green's functions of stratified media (6 hours)
  2. Dominant spectral contributions and far-field (4 hours)
  3. Surface waves and leaky waves (6 hours)
  4. Artificial dielectric materials (4 hours)
  5. Spectral representations for planar Tx-lines (4 hours)
  6. Connected arrays (10 hours)

Study goals:
The students will be able to
- apply spectral domain methods for the analysis of a number of electromagnetic problems (planar transmission lines, artificial dielectrics, optical systems)
- create functional MATLAB scripts that implement the studied methods
- present and critically analyze the results obtained with the MATLAB codes
