This course EITF80 (formerly ESS050) Electromagnetic Fields will give you fundamental knowledge of electromagnetic theory. You will acquire good knowledge of the electromagnetic concepts that are used in electrotechnical applications, e.g., electronics, measurement techniques and electric power techniques. The EIT department provides three advanced courses that will allow you to get a deeper understanding of important aspects of the subject. All these courses follow naturally from this course.
The course ETEN05 Electromagnetic Wave Propagation is a 7.5hp A-level course in HT1. Electromagnetic waves are the final link on which modern communication relies, and are hence of fundamental importance for today's society. The course treats how electromagnetic waves propagate in different materials and structures, which has applications in e.g., wireless and wired communication systems. The course includes e.g.,
- Maxwell’s equations and boundary conditions.
- Wave propagation in complex materials
- Wave propagation in inhomogeneous materials
The course also includes a minor project allowing you to get practical experience from working with the theory in the course.
In ETEN10 Antenna Technology, you will acquire a good ability to analyze and design antennas. It is a 7.5hp A-level course in HT2 focusing on many important aspects of antenna engineering. The course includes e.g.,
- Antenna parameters
- Various antenna types and their different properties
- Measurement techniques
- Directivity and radiation pattern
In the laboratory work an antenna is designed, manufactured and measured giving you practical experience that can be related to the theory.
The course ETEN01 Microwave Theory, a 7.5hp A-level course in VT2, gives an understanding of the physics of transmission lines, waveguides, and optical fibers. It also gives the microwave technique used in accelerators. The course includes e.g.,
- Transmission lines
- The microwave technique used in particle accelerators
- Measurements using network analyser
Many of the applications are taken from the accelerators that are to be used at MAX IV and ESS. Thus, the course covers some of the most modern techniques available today.
