Course Aim

After the course the student:
- should know how to formulate and solve electrostatic and magnetostatic problems in complicated geometry using the software multiphysics.
- should know how to analyse the propagation of electromagnetic waves in vacuum, dielectric and metallic materials.
- should know how to analyse the propagation of electromagnetic waves in wave guides and optical fibers.

- should know how to analyse transmission lines and the radiation fields from simple antennas.
- should know how to construct and measure the properties of antennas

Electromagnetic Fields: Potential theory for electrostatics and magnetostatics. Maxwells equations. Plane waves.
Propagation of electromagnetic waves in
vacuum, dielectric, metallic materials, wave guides and optical fibers.
Antenna theory: The radiation field from a source. Multipole expansion ot the radiation field, dipole and quadrupole antennas.
Antenna construction: Construction and measurement of handmade antennas.
