TRAINIG GOALS
The aim of the course is two-fold:

  • to provide physical insight of photonic and microwave components;
  • to offer the theoretical and practical tools to design and measure basic antennas.

Those aims are achieved through a combination of lecturers, tutorials, and laboratory activities.

PREREQUISITES
This course requires that the students have studied the compulsory courses in electromagnetics at UNIMORE, or equivalent courses at other universities.
