The last decade has seen considerable advances in the field of microwave engineering. There are new devices available for the generation of microwaves. Also, microwaves are now finding interesting applications in several non-communication areas like industrial control and measurement and dielectric heating at microwave frequencies. The present text is the result of the attempts to incorporate these new trends in the first course on Microwaves.
Apart from classical topics in the field of microwave circuits, measurements, vacuum tube and solid state sources, etc., the coverage in the book extends to non-reciprocal devices switching elements, and microwave integrated circuits. The book also covers some of the emerging industrial applications. A bibliography follows each chapter. Problems at the end of the book will help the students to get a better understanding of the subject.Table of Contents
