Introduction to Electromagnetics and Photonics

ENG EC 565

This course familiarizes the student with fundamental concepts in electromagnetics and photonics that govern the generation, propagation, and reception of fields and waves in the optical and radio-frequency domains. Topics include the formulation of Maxwell's equations; propagation in free-space, waveguides, and dispersive or anisotropic media, including metamaterials; lightwave interactions at interfaces; radiation and scattering theory for antennas and from apertures. There will be a strong emphasis on connecting these theoretical concepts to current and emerging applications and technologies.
