ECE 336: Electromagnetic Theory II
Prerequisite: ECE 335; for CPE/ECE majors only
General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology
Fundamentals of electromagnetic waves, propagation, and radiation as a continuation of ECE 335. The course reviews general Maxwell's equations in integral and differential form, and electromagnetic boundary conditions. Poynting's theorem and Lorentz potentials are studied. Topics include the propagation of uniform plane electromagnetic waves in free space and in various media (including wave reflection and refraction, and skin effect), transmission-line theory using frequency- and time-domain analysis, analysis of waveguides and electromagnetic resonators, and fundamentals of radiation and antennas. Numerical techniques for radiation and scattering are introduced. Two laboratory experiments on transmission lines and waveguides are performed.
