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