- ELG7100A (EACJ5404A) Topics in Electromagnetics I: Nonlinear Microwave Devices (Carleton CRN: 17240)
The physical basis and mathematical modelling of a variety of microwave/millimetre-wave devices, how they can be exploited in practical circuits and systems, and how the resulting device/circuit interactions can be analyzed. Devices include two-terminal nonlinear elements based on classical, heterostructure and superconducting technologies: pn and Schottky-barrier diodes, tunnel and resonant-tunneling diodes, BIN and BNN varactor diodes, high-electron-mobility varactor diodes, and Josephson-junction diodes. Three-terminal nonlinear devices include MESFETs, HBTs, and HEMTs. Circuit applications encompass frequency mixers; power amplifiers; resistive, reactive, and active frequency multipliers; as well as harmonic generators. Emphasis will be placed on analytical approaches that provide global insight into the nonlinear phenomena.
