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