Preface to Foundations for Microwave Engineering

The first edition of Foundations for Microwave Engineering was published in 1966.

The text has remained continuously in use since that time, but it has become clear that it no longer gives an adequate account of modern microwave engineering practice.

Since the publication of the first edition there has been a dramatic advance in the microwave field brought about by the development of solid state transistors that can provide amplification and signal generation well into the millimeter wavelength region.

Along with the widespread use of solid state devices, compatible transmission line structures and passive components were developed that could be integrated with the solid state devices into compact miniaturized microwave systems.

These developments made it mandatory that the text be thoroughly revised if it were to continue serving the needs of the student and the practicing microwave engineer.

In the revised addition I have adhered to the same general philosophy that governed the preparation of the first edition. Fundamental principles are stressed and complete derivations are provided for all significant formulas and relationships.

All important fundamental concepts and principles are covered to the extent possible within a text of reasonable size.

The applications of basic theory and principles are illustrated through detailed analysis of a large number of important components that find widespread use in practical microwave systems.

Chapter 1 is an updated introductory chapter. Chapter 2 is essentially the same as in the original edition and provides a comprehensive summary of basic electromagnetic theory that is needed as background for proper understanding of the rest of the text.

Many students will already have knowledge of this material before they pursue a course in microwave engineering. For these students, Chapter 2 will serve as a concise reference or review of familiar material.

Chapter 3 is very different from that in the first edition. The first part of this chapter provides a more basic introduction to waves on transmission lines using distributed circuit models.

The propagation of pulse signals is also covered. The second part of this chapter is a long section covering the characteristics of planar transmission lines, such as micro strip lines, coupled micro strip lines, strip lines, and coplanar lines or wave guides.

The treatment is considerably broader than what is available in any other current text. Most of the formulas for the quasi-TEM mode parameters are derived using conform al mapping methods in a new Appendix III and are not just quoted from the literature.

Several new formulas for attenuation have been derived as well as suitable modifications of existing formulas to account for anisotropic substrates.

The last part of the chapter covers the basic properties of rectangular and circular wave guides, as in the original edition.
