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.

COURSE PROGRAMME

  • Introduction: Electromagnetic Spectrum;Microwave applications; Wireless systems; Optical and Photonic Applications
  • Review antenna fundamentals: radiation pattern; drectivity and gain; radiation resistance; effective area; Friis transmission formula.
  • Microstrip antennas: Basic Characteristics; feeding methods;
  • RFID systems and antennas;
  • Aperture type antennas: radiation from planar aperture; Uniform and tapered aperture field; radiaton from slots.
  • Plane waves; Reflection from dielectric and conducting planes.
  • Cylindrical structures and their modes; Mode properties; Dispersion and attenuation.
  • Metallic Waveguides: Planar and rectangular Waveguides; Modes; Cut-off frequency; Phase and Group velocities.
  • Dielectric Waveguides: Slab; Optical Fiber; Radiating Modes; Propagation Loss.
  • Sources and Detectors.
  • LEDs and Lasers: stimulated emission, resonant cavity;
  • Photodiodes
