ENGR 075. Electromagnetic Theory I

The static and dynamic treatment of engineering applications of Maxwell's equations will be explored. Topics include macroscopic field treatment of interactions with dielectric, conducting, and magnetic materials; analysis of forces and energy storage as the basis of circuit theory; electromagnetic waves in free space and guidance within media; plane waves and modal propagation; and polarization, reflection, refraction, diffraction, and interference. The lab will include optical applications using lasers, fiber and integrated optical devices, modulators, nonlinear materials, and solid-state detectors.
Offered in the fall semester of alternate years.
