Mikrowellentechnik / Microwave Engineering

This lecture (with exercise) is given with the same content but in different languages in SS (English) and WS (German). The lecture is based on the following book:

David Pozar "Microwave Engineering", 3rd ed. Wiley 2005

The exam is in each semester and for every student bilingual.



All information and material about lecture and exercise can be found in ILIAS (see Link above).

The password was shared at the beginning of the semester.
