Course: ECE 577. Microwave and Optical System Design (3)
Prerequisites: ECE 340, ECE 370 or instructor consent. Advanced concepts in microwave and optical system design encompassing amplifier circuits, oscillators (lasers, masers, resonators, etc.), detectors, mixers, switches, and couplers are treated. The design of Optoelectronic and Microwave Integrated Circuits (OEICs and MICs) as well as microwave noise analysis and measurement techniques, and advanced concepts in Holography are also treated.
