Advances in Microwaves, Volume 8 covers the developments in the study of microwaves. The book discusses the circuit forms for microwave integrated circuits; the analysis of microstrip transmission lines; and the use of lumped elements in microwave integrated circuits. The text also describes the microwave properties of ferrimagnetic materials, as well as their interaction with electromagnetic waves propagating in bounded waveguiding structures. The integration techniques useful at high frequencies; material technology for microwave integrated circuits; specific requirements on technology for distributed and lumped-element circuits; and characterization and utilization of solid-state devices in integrated circuits are also encompassed. The book further tackles microwave propagation on coupled pairs of microstrip transmission lines and computer-aided design, simulation and optimization of microwave technology. Microwave engineers will find the book invaluable.
