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.
