This authoritative resource provides you with comprehensive and detailed coverage of the wave approach to microwave network characterization, analysis, and design using scattering parameters. For the first time in any book, all aspects and approaches to wave variables and the scattering matrix are explored. The book compares and contrasts voltage waves, travelling waves, pseudo waves, and power waves, and explains the differences between real scattering parameters, pseudo scattering parameters, and power scattering parameters. You find important discussions on standard scattering matrices and wave quantities, mixed mode wave variables, and noise wave variables with noise wave correlation matrices. Moreover, the book presents clear methods for standard single ended multiport network design and noise analysis. This indepth reference is packed with over 1,100 equations and numerous illustrations.
