6.013 Electromagnetics and Applications

Class Info

Analysis and design of modern applications that employ electromagnetic phenomena for signals and power transmission in RF, microwaves, optical and wireless communication systems. Fundamentals include dynamic solutions for Maxwell's equations; electromagnetic power and energy, waves in media, metallic and dielectric waveguides, radiation, and diffraction; resonance; filters; and acoustic analogs. Labs activities range from building to testing of devices and systems (e.g., antenna arrays, radars, dielectric waveguides). Students work in teams on self-proposed maker-style design projects with a focus on fostering creativity, teamwork, and debugging skills. 6.002 and 6.003 are recommended but not required.

This class has 18.02, and 8.02 as prerequisites.

6.013 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by L. Daniel and M. R. Watts.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 32-141.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
