Microwave lectures

Dr.-Ing. Gerald Staats, HZDR

Lecture 1: Microwave Devices and Models

In this course the following devices mainly for microwave application are presented: passive electronic devices, as resistors, inductors and capacitors. Then tubes for transmitting application above 1kW, as triodes, tetrodes, magnetrons and klystrons. Next devices are discrete semiconductors, as pn-diodes, schottky-diodes, pin-diodes, step-recovery-diodes, varactor-diodes and transistors as BJT-transistors, HBT-GaAs-, GaAs-FET- and HEMT-Transistors. Last topic ist then an introduction to GaAs-MMIC's technology. For most of this devices also simulation models are presented and used in Agilent ADS.

Lecture 2: Microwave Circuit Design

The aim of the course is to provide knowledges of microwave circuit design. Topics are passive components as impedance and noise matching networks, linear amplifier circuits, non-linear (power) amplifers, oscillators and phase locked loops. For most of them the step by step design and optimization procedure will be presented and hints are given. One further topic will be the design of MMIC's. Using Agilent ADS a microwave amplifier will be designed, built and measured in the laboratory.

Lecture 3: Microwave Measurement Techniques

In this course the following topics will be presented: measurement of RF voltage, current and power, frequency and phase measurements, determining of electric and magnetic field strength, spectrum analysis, scalar and vector network analyzers, noise and phase noise measurement, measurement of receiver parameters, technology for antenna research, determining of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). The laboratory practices are on field strength measurements, signal analysis in the frequency domain and network analysis with the slotted transmission line as well as with the vector network analyzer. Measured data will be compared to simulations in the excercises.

Lecture 4: Antenna Design

This course introduces the fundamentals of antennas for communication and radar. The following topics will be covered: antenna parameters, elementary radiators, discrete antenna arrays, linear antennas, aperture radiators, reflector and lense antennas, traveling wave antennas, radiation coupled antennas, helical antennas, biconical antennas, self similar or frequency independent antennas and planar microstrip antennas. In the laboratory work a planar antenna array will be designed, built and measured.
