Widely acclaimed both in the U.S. and abroad, this authoritative text bridges the gap between circuits and new electromagnetics material. Ulaby begins coverage with transmission lines, leading students from familiar concepts into more advanced topics and applications. Maintaining its student-friendly approach, this revision aims to clarify certain concepts and incorporates feedback from instructors and students.
More emphasis on dynamics than statics: Enables instructors to cover applications of time-varying fields in the first semester.
Unique coverage of optical fibers and imaging.
Consistent use of mathematics to explain and clarify the physics, for more thorough verification of material.
New to This Edition
Six new sections on Waveguides and Cavity Resonators: Replaces the material on geometric optics in Chapter 8.
Technology Briefs on relevant topics:
＊ Connects concepts studied by undergraduates (such as capacitance, inductance, and polarization) to everyday applications experienced by students.
＊ Examples include capacitive sensors (how they are used to measure pressure and as fingerprinting devices), liquid crystal displays (emphasizing the role of wave polarization to their operation), and operation of the laser, GPS, and x-ray tomography.
Extensively revised and new End-of-Chapter Problems.
