Valid from: Spring 2013
Decided by: FN1/Anders Gustafsson
Date of establishment: 2013-08-26

## General Information

Division: Electrical and Information Technology
Course type: Course given jointly for second and third cycle
The course is also given at second-cycle level with course code: ETEN01
Teaching languages: English, Swedish

## Aim

The course gives the basic knowledge that researchers and engineers in accelerator and radar technology, and wired and wireless communication system should master. It describes the physics of optical fibers, transmission lines, waveguides and microwave cavities. It also describes the microwave technique used in particle accelerators. Many of the applications are taken from the accelerators that are designed for MAXIV and ESS.

## Goals

Knowledge and Understanding

For a passing grade the doctoral student must

• •master the most common mathematical and numerical methods for wave propagation along guiding structures
• •understand the principles behind the microwave technique in particel accelerators
• understand the physics behind waveguides and resonance cavities
• •have elementary knowledge in measurements at high frequencies

Competences and Skills

For a passing grade the doctoral student must

• •be able to apply the elementary theory for transmission lines
• •be able to use the method of separation of variables for resonance cavities and wave propagation in waveguides and optical fibres
• •know how to apply the finite element method to resonance cavities, waveguides and optical fibres
• •know how to use the network analyser for measurements at high frequencies
• •know how to apply commercial programs for the finite element method to wave propagation problems

Judgement and Approach

For a passing grade the doctoral student must

• •be able to evaluate different types of systems for communication with guiding structures
• •determine which analytical, numerical, and experimental methods that are suitable for analysing a system

## Course Contents

Transmission lines, Smith chart, network analyser, S-matrix, rectangular and circular wave guides, TE- and TM-modes, resonance cavities, coupling between accelerated particles and electromagnetic fields in cavities, optical fibres, optical components in optronics, periodic structures and the finite element method.
