The purpose of this volume is to collect in one place the essential fundamental principles for a group of microwave devices. The chosen devices are those which form the basic modules found in practical microwave systems. Thus, these devices provide the crucial building blocks in common microwave systems, and their inherent characteristics are also the basis of some of the fundamental concepts in more complex devices. The reader will require a basic knowledge of propagation in unbounded regions and of guided waves and some background in electro-magnetic radiation. This book is intended to serve students who have a one-year introductory course in electromagnetic field theory in addition to the freshman-level physics course in electricity, magnetism and waves.
