6.632 Electromagnetic Wave Theory


Class Info

Solutions to Maxwell equations and physical interpretation. Topics include waves in media, equivalence principle, duality and complementarity, Huygens' principle, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction, radiation and dyadic Green's functions, scattering, metamaterials, and plasmonics, mode theory, dielectric waveguides, and resonators. Examples deal with limiting cases of electromagnetic theory, multi-port elements, filters and antennas. Discusses current topics in microwave and photonic devices.

This class has 6.013, 6.630, and 8.07 as prerequisites.

6.632 will be offered this semester (Spring 2017). It is instructed by M. R. Watts.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
