Empirical Modeling of Microwave Devices

  • Course code: FMCC010
  • Course higher education credits: 7.5
  • Department: MICROTECHNOLOGY AND NANOSCIENCE
  • Graduate school: Microtechnology and Nanoscience
  • Course is normally given: Every second year in LP 4
  • Language: The course will be given in English
  • Nordic Five Tech (N5T): This course is free for PhD students from N5T universities
The course objective is to teach methods commonly used in the microwave community for empirical device modeling, i.e. for development of small- and large signal models from measurements and physical understanding of dominant device mechanisms.
