    OVERVIEW

    The course discusses electromagnetic propagation in presence of complex structures and characterization of microwave systems.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course provides advanced electromagnetic skills, which concern the characterization of microwave systems, electromagnetic propagation in the presence of complex structures, and numerical methods for solving electromagnetic problems. These didactic contents are also discussed with reference to some application examples, such as radiofrequency systems for detection and positioning in the industrial, civil, and biomedical sectors. The goal is to enable students to be able to deal with the electromagnetic aspects involved in the study and design of complex systems and structures.

    PREREQUISITES

    Basic concepts of electromagnetic fields.

    TEACHING METHODS

    Lectures.

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    Recalls and insights on basic electromagnetic theory. Characterization of microwave systems and networks. Electromagnetic propagation in presence of structures and in "complex" environments: dielectric slabs and multilayer structures; Electromagnetic scattering. Numerical methods for the solution of electromagnetic problems. Examples of electromagnetic and radiofrequency systems and their applications in the industrial, civil, and biomedical fields. New concepts and applications (e.g., metamaterials, etc.).
