Whether a few microwave facts are fading from memory and need touching up, or you're learning them for the first time, Introduction to Microwaves is for you. This one-of-a-kind book presents the field of microwaves in its entirety, from principles to applications. Originally published in French, it is the perfect text for any upper-level student, beginning engineer, or advanced technician, and is a handy reference for the practicing engineer. The key to the book is its simplicity. Dr. Gardiol has made this difficult subject accessible by presenting the material clearly, using many simple diagrams and equations. Each chapter outlines the basic principles of the general topic before discussing specifics, and each chapter concludes with a problem set and answers. Dr. Gardiol has presented concise explanations of magnetrons, klystrons, gyrotrons, frequency multiplication, and low noise amplifiers. Specific techniques for meauring reflection, transmission, cavities, and noise figure are described. A special chapter on applications discusses potential uses in radar, communications, microwave heating, biomedics, materials measurements, radiometry, and particle acceleration. This English translation includes a chapter on transmission line theory not included in the French edition. The appendices review math and material properties, and the glossary references symbols and units used in the book. Buy the book now. It will not only teach you what you need to know about microwaves, but it'll be there when the professional needs a refresher.
