About the book
MICROWAVE DEVICES AND APPLICATIONS beginning with a brief introduction to microwaves, covers problems faced in extending low frequency devices to GHz frequencies, transmission lines stating their limitations, waveguides, cavity resonators, microwave tubes used for generation and amplification and semiconductor microwave devices. The book also discusses modified designs of transistors and FETs for high frequency operation along with Gunn and IMPATT devices, waveguide components which may be assembled to form circuits, ferrite phenomena at microwave measurements alongwith underlying principles and technology used in the fabrication of microwave integrated circuits and current applications of microwaves in material processing.
The book will serve as a text for undergraduate engineering students. Appropriate topics from the book may be chosen for a microwave course at Masters level. Faculty teaching microwaves at various levels will also find the book a useful addition.
