Principles of Microwave Technology
Principles of Microwave Technology becomes an indispensable guide for both the engineering and the technical student. It delves into the concepts of microwave technology and encourages understanding through relevant examples that explain how things work. The text also serves as a practical reference that includes the new Personal Communications Services (PCS)/Personal Communications Network (PNC) terminology as well as the Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) services. Harsany builds upon basics such as frequency, bands, and wavelengths and moves ahead through passive and active microwave components to explain specific applications in radar and communications. Each chapter includes a clear list of objectives, key equations, and a summary. Thought-provoking questions and problem sets at the end of chapters reaffirm comprehension of the material presented. A software tutorial is also provided and is packaged with the text.
