The development of high speed, high frequency circuits and systems requires an understanding of the properties of materials functioning at the microwave level. This comprehensive reference sets out to address this requirement by providing guidance on the development of suitable measurement methodologies tailored for a variety of materials and application systems. Bringing together coverage of a broad range of techniques in one publication for the first time, this book: Provides a comprehensive introduction to microwave theory and microwave measurement techniques. Examines every aspect of microwave material properties, circuit design and applications. Presents materials property characterisation methods along with a discussion of the underlying theory. Outlines the importance of microwave absorbers in the reduction in noise levels in microwave circuits and their importance within defence industry applications. Relates each measurement technique to its application across the fields of microwave engineering, high-speed electronics, remote sensing and the physical sciences. This book will appeal to practising engineers and technicians working in the areas of RF, microwaves, communications, solid-state devices and radar. Senior students, researchers in microwave engineering and microelectronics and material scientists will also find this book a very useful reference.

Drawing on over twenty years of teaching experience, this comprehensive yet self-contained text provides an in-depth introduction to the field of integrated microwave electronics. Ideal for a first course on the subject, it covers essential topics such as passive components and transistors, linear, low-noise and power amplifiers, and microwave measurements. An entire chapter is devoted to CAD techniques for analysis and design, covering examples of easy-to-medium difficulty for both linear and non-linear subsystems, and supported online by ADS and AWR project files. More advanced topics are also covered, providing an up-to-date overview of compound semiconductor technologies and treatment of electromagnetic issues and models. Readers can test their knowledge with end-of-chapter questions and numerical problems, and solutions and lecture slides are available online for instructors. This is essential reading for graduate and senior undergraduate students taking courses in microwave, radio-frequency and high-frequency electronics, as well as professional microwave engineers.

This book presents the basic principles, characteristics and applications of commonly used microwave devices used in the design of microwave systems. The book begins with a brief overview of the field of microwave engineering and then provides a thorough review of two prerequisite topics in electromagnetics, that is, electromagnetic field theory and transmission lines, so essential to know before analysing and designing microwave systems. The book presents the full spectrum of both passive and active microwave components. Hollow pipe waveguides are thoroughly analysed with respect to their field components and other important characteristics such as bandwidth, dispersive nature, various impedances, and attenuation parameters. The basic principles of various types of microwave junctions used for power division, addition, and in measurement systems, such as tees, directional-couplers, circulators, gyrators, etc. are explained, along with their scattering parameters required for the analysis of microwave circuits. The text also presents a comprehensive analytical treatment of microwave tubes in common use, such as klystrons, magnetrons, TWTs, and solid state sources such as Gunn diodes, IMPATT diodes, funnel diodes and PiN diodes, etc. Finally, the book describes the laboratory procedures for measurements of various parameters of circuits working at microwave frequencies. The book contains an instructional framework at the end of each chapter composed of questions, problems, and objective type questions to enable students to gain skills in applying the principles and techniques learned in the text. The book is appropriate for a course in Microwave Engineering at the level of both undergraduate and postgraduate students of Electronics and Communication Engineering.

Electronics and Instrumentation, Volume 16: Fundamentals of Microwave Electronics provides an understanding of the phenomena that occur in the physics and technology of microwave electron devices. This book presents a systematic examination of the physical processes that take place in microwave electron devices. Organized into three parts encompassing seven chapters, this volume begins with an overview of oscillatory systems used in microwave electron devices. This text then explains the two fundamental methods of producing density modulation of an electron beam. Other chapters consider the energy exchange between an electron beam and an alternating electric field, which is associated with a change in electron kinetic energy. This book discusses as well the basic operational principles of the various microwave electron devices. The final chapter deals with microwave devices with resonator or delay line circuits. This book is a valuable resource for light electrical engineers. Students specializing in the microwave field will also find this book useful.

The fundamentals of microwave and wireless communications technology are critical to the telecommunications and data acquisitions fields. Because many of the new developments involve commonly available equipment such as cellular telephones and satellite dishes, technicians as well as engineers must learn the basics of the technology. Microwave and Wireless Communications Technology offers a practical, device-based approach to the study of microwave and wireless communications. Student objectives, numerous questions and problems, and end-of-chapter summaries reinforce the theory in each chapter. Answers to odd-numbered questions are provided in the back of the book. Math is kept to the lowest practical level, and the last section of each chapter is a collection of the key equations laid out for the student. A Windows diskette with supplementary instructor material is available on request with adoption.
