The goal Introduction to the basic quantities measured in the microwave engineering, measurement procedures, construction details of the measuring instruments, and practical training on these instruments. The gained knowledge should allow a microwave engineer to properly choose the measuring method and the measuring instrument for characterization of the modern microwave devices and systems.
The outcome Capability to adequately choose and efficiently use measuring instruments for testing of microwave devices and microwave signals.
Contents of lectures Cables, connectors and adapters. Signal generators. Measurements of S-parameters using network analyzer. Calibration. Measurements of signal spectrum using spectrum analyzer. Measurements of impedance using slotted lines and waveguides. Noise-figure measurements. Signal-power measurements. Measurements of the signal frequency. Time domain measurements. Measurement of antenna radiation pattern.
Contents of exercises Problem-solving classes and lab exercises. Measurements: impedance measurement using slotted line and slotted waveguide, power measurements using watt-meter, measurements of linear characteristics of filters and amplifiers using network analyzer, measurements of non-linear characteristics of amplifiers with the network analyzer and spectrum analyzer, measurements of an antenna radiation pattern.
