In this course students will learn: (1) About transmission lines (what happens when the wires in a circuit are long relative to a wavelength) and how to use transmission lines to connect equipment (e.g. signal generators) to loads (e.g. antennas); (2) How to use Smith Charts; (3) How antennas radiate, including directionality, radiation patterns, etc.; (4) How electromagnetic waves radiated from antennas propagate via Maxwell's equations in various materials; and (5) What happens when electromagnetic waves encounter objects (reflection, transmission, absorption, etc).
