Description
This course will include topics relevant to antenna design and current research in metamaterials. Students will complete projects based on these topics. Metamaterial topics may include: material parameter extraction, effective medium theory, resonant unit cell analysis, and unit cell coupling. Examples will be drawn from invisibility cloaking and negative index media. Antenna topics may include: complex antenna shapes, real array effects, co-located antenna interference, high-impedance ground-planes, and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).
