This book deals with a rather complex discipline that involves many different techniques and approaches: the result is a difficult and alluring subject at the same time. Most academic tradition focuses on the electromagnetic-related aspects of microwaves, i.e. on the science of the solution of Maxwell’s equations, which is quite difficult to divulgate because of the remarkable difficulties it involves. The electromagnetic theory is the basis of the high-frequency techniques, from radio frequency (RF) up to millimeter waves; therefore it must be well understood, in order to comprehend and dominate a variety of phenomena utilized in many applications, mainly – but not exclusively – in telecommunications. Microwaves, however, do not reduce to the electromagnetic theory. The microwave engineer, i.e. the designer operating with frequencies that are so high as to need a specific methodological approach, must have a basic knowledge of the electromagnetic theory, but must also be familiar with network theory, signal theory, linear and nonlinear circuits, and electronic technology – particularly microwave integrated circuits, CAD techniques and test instruments. Such considerations have motivated us to write this book. It differs from traditional microwave books because it includes several topics, such as semiconductor device modeling or test instruments, that are commonly considered at the boundary with other electronic disciplines, but are equally important for practicing microwave engineers. This book is intended for both students and professionals. Therefore the topics are presented – wherever possible – at different levels of depth. The reader will find some topics, discussed in specific sections printed in line boxes, that can be ignored without lack of continuity of the discussion. In this way, we tried to circumvent the difficulties related to the conventional approach to microwaves, without losing a detailed and rigorous exposition. We are aware that many important topics have not been included in the book, particularly propagation in dielectric waveguides and optical fibers. The study of propagation in micro strips and printed circuits has been limited to a brief qualitative description. The same treatment applies to the analysis of many components and devices, as well as many other specific topics. The size limitation for the book to be manageable has imposed some exclusion. We hope nevertheless to have provided a useful tool for a first approach and for subsequent in-depth study as well. Based on own different experience, we had to realize a book combining formal academic rigor with a practical approach useful for the designer. The conventional research-oriented list of subjects has thus been extended to cover a number of application-oriented aspects. Examples from actual engineering practice are included in all chapters.
