I-II 2019 - 2020 (autumn)

Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course raises and reinforces the already implied basic knowledge of master students in field and wave electrodynamics from electrostatics to resonators and dipole antennas. After passing this course the students are ready to learn antennas (IV - V) and other radio components and techniques of microwave engineering course (IV-V) and linear light-matter interaction in metamaterials (2nd year, I - II).

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Basic concepts of electromagnetic fields, carriers and sources, including Maxwell and supporting equations (continuity, material etc.) in their links to basic physic laws, circuitry and impedance models as quasi-static limit cases, wave equations and their solutions, radiation, properties and parameters of electromagnetic waves in media, refraction, reflection, transmission, guided waves, transmission lines, confined waveguides, closed resonators, open waveguides and resonators.

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Preliminary tasks, homework, in-class exercises with course assistants, final exam.
