CONTENT

Radiation from a moving point charge. Radiation from Thin-Wire Antennas with examples on pulse excitation and time-harmonic excitation, arrays of linear antennas, aperture antennas, microstrip antennas and applications to emerging telecommunication systems.

OBJECTIVE

Introduction to antennas and propagation for wireless communication.

LEARNING OUTCOME

At the end of the unit, students will learn
basic principles/parameters of antennas and wave propagation and apply it to wireless communication systems

Students will learn about different type of antennas; wire antennas, loop antennas, resonant patch antennas, broadband antennas
Students will be able to learn and apply array theory to antenna problems.
As the outcome of the project, students will learn how to simulate antenna problems in EM software and implement their simulated antenna in PCB technology. Get expertise on antenna and microwave propagation measurement.
Use Microwave/antenna laboratory equipment;, RF Network analyzer, RF signal generator, RF Spectrum analyzer correctly and safely, to make antenna impedance and radiation pattern and wave propagation measurements.
Students will learn wave propagation mechanisms; scattering, reflection and diffraction applied to wireless communication
