Microwave Engineering / Foundations for Microwave Engineering Second Edition A Classic Reissue in the IEEE Press Series on Electromagnetic Wave Theory Donald G. Dudley, Series Editor
Foundations for Microwave Engineering, Second Edition, covers the major topics of microwave engineering. Its presentation defines the accepted standard for both advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses on microwave engineering An essential reference book for the practicing microwave engineer, it features:
- Planar transmission lines, as well as an appendix that describes in detail conformal mapping methods for their analysis and attenuation characteristics.
- Small aperture coupling and its application in practical components such as directional couplers and cavity coupling.
- Printed circuit components with an emphasis on techniques such as even and odd mode analysis and the use of symmetry properties.
- Microwave linear amplifier and oscillator design using solid-state circuits such as varactor devices and transistors.
Foundations for Microwave Engineering, Second Edition, has extensive coverage of transmission lines, waveguides, microwave circuit theory, impedance matching, and cavity resonators. It devotes an entire chapter to fundamental microwave tubes, as well as other chapters on periodic structures, microwave filters, small signal solid-state microwave amplifier and oscillator design, and negative resistance devices and circuits. Completely updated in 1992, it is being reissued by the IEEE Press in response to requests from our many members, who found it an invaluable textbook and an enduring reference for practicing microwave engineers.
About the IEEE Press Series on Electromagnetic Wave Theory
The IEEE Press Series on Electromagnetic Wave Theory offers outstanding coverage of the field. It consists of new titles of contemporary interest, as well as reissues and revisions of recognized classics by established authors and researchers. The series emphasizes works of long-term archival significance in electromagnetic waves and applications. Designed specifically for graduate students, researchers and practicing engineers, the series provides affordable volumes that explore and explain electromagnetic waves beyond the undergraduate level.
