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.
