Microwave Engineering: Fundamentals, Design and Applications emphasises the basic concepts of microwave engineering, design techniques and applications of microwave engineering in a markedly different way. This inclusive approach covers the undergraduate syllabus of almost all Indian institutions where microwave engineering is taught and to some extent a part of the postgraduate curriculum too. The student-friendly nature of the book is strengthened by:  

•  CAD solutions with standard simulators used for optimal design of matching networks and filters,
•  an exclusive chapter on Waveguides and Resonators, 
•  simulation based design of microwave oscillators and amplifiers,  
•  basics of microwave measurement techniques and fundamentals of spectrum analyser and network analyser, 
•  a chapter on Radar Principle and Systems, 
•  concise coverage of EMI-EMC and microwave antennae, 
•  Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools and 3D electromagnetic field simulators used to solve a number of design problems, 
•  use of MATLAB in generating characteristic curves and solving problems, 
•  coverage of an emerging topic of microwave engineering—metamaterials,
•  review questions that help in self-assessment, and 
• ‘recapitulation’ that serves to reinforce the fundamentals contained in the chapter.
