The authors examine electrodynamics, multiconductor lines, and numerical methods for the modeling, simulation, analysis, and design of various super-wide-band slow-wave structures, including helical, meander, and gutter-type systems. The book features: • The electrodynamic method for analysis of helical structures containing periodical inhomogeneities • The multiconductor line method for analysis of complex helical, meander, and gutter-type wide-band slow-wave structures • The method of moments for modeling and analysis of multiconductor lines containing a limited number of lines and meander structures with limited length • Use of powerful software systems Microwave Office®, MICROWAVE STUDIO®, and MATLAB® for modeling, analysis, and design • A synergy of various methods for investigating and designing wide-band slow-wave structures • Solution of specific problems related to the design of wide-band and super-wide-band electrodynamic delay and deflection systems

Atmospheric Influences with Models and Applications Pranab Kumar Karmakar University of Calcutta, West Bengal, India

Because prevailing atmospheric/troposcopic conditions greatly influence radio wave propagation above 10 GHz, the unguided propagation of microwaves in the neutral atmosphere can directly impact many vital applications in science and engineering. These include transmission of intelligence, and radar and radiometric applications used to probe the atmosphere, among others. Where most books address either one or the other, Microwave Propagation and Remote Sensing: Atmospheric Influences with Models and Applications melds coverage of these two subjects to help readers develop solutions to the problems they present. This reference offers a brief, elementary account of microwave propagation through the atmosphere and discusses radiometric applications in the microwave band used to characterize and model atmospheric constituents, which is also known as remote sensing. Topics Covered Include: • Reflection, interference, polarization, and other key aspects of electromagnetic wave propagation • Radio refraction and its effects on propagation delay • Methodology of estimating water vapor attenuation using radiosonde data • Knowledge of rain structures and use of climatological patterns to estimate/measure attenuation of rain, snow, fog, and other prevalent atmospheric particles and human-made substances • Dual/multifrequency methodology to deal with the influence of clouds on radiometric attenuation

• Principles of computer-aided design of slow-wave structures

• Derived parameters of water, free space propagation, and conditions and variable constituents such as water vapor and vapor pressure, density, and ray bending

Gregory R. Toker

Transparent in the visible range, phase objects can be studied in the optical range using holographic interferometry. Typically, the holograms are recorded on high-resolving-power holographic photo materials, but a lower spatial resolution is sufficient for successful research in many scientific applications. Holographic Interferometry: A Mach–Zehnder Approach offers practical guidance to research scientists and engineers using Mach–Zehnder holographic interferometry methods to study phase objects in the laboratory. The Mach–Zehnder approach allows the use of standard photographic film and electronic CCD/CMOS sensors with low resolving power, making it a simpler and more affordable option for testing many types of phase objects. This book demonstrates how to use standard photographic film for the optical recording and reconstruction of Mach–Zehnder holograms. It also illustrates techniques for using CCD/CMOS cameras to digitally record Mach–Zehnder holograms/interferograms of transparent objects. Bringing together original research and information scattered throughout existing literature, this book focuses on the holographic reference beam and shearing interferometry methods. In particular, it looks at how these methods and optical schemes can be directly applied to testing aerodynamic flows, as well as to plasmas, shocks, and waves in noncoherent laser–matter interactions. Numerous reconstructed and classic interferograms, deflectograms, and Schlierengrams illustrate the material, helping readers develop and design their own optimal optical scheme and choose applicable details to apply the approach. Describing methods in a mathematically simple and accessible way, this book is also suitable for graduate students in the fields of aerospace engineering and optics, as well as those in laser, thermal, and plasma physics.

Diffuse Optical Tomography (DOT) provides spatial distributions of intrinsic tissue optical properties or molecular contrast agents through model-based reconstruction algorithms using NIR measurements along or near the boundary of tissue. Written by an authority involved in the field since its nascent stages, Diffuse Optical Tomography: Principles and Applications profiles this revolutionary imaging method. Despite the practical value of DOT, many engineers from electrical or applied mathematics backgrounds do not have a sufficient understanding of its vast clinical applications and portability value, or its uncommon advantages as a tool for obtaining functional, cellular, and molecular parameters. A collection of the author’s research and experience, this book fuses historical perspective and experiential anecdotes with fundamental principles and vital technical information needed to successfully apply this technology—particularly in medical imaging. This reference outlines how to use DOT to create experimental image systems and adapt the results of laboratory studies for use in clinical applications including: • Early-stage detection of breast tumors and prostate cancer • "Real-time" functional brain imaging • Joint imaging to treat progressive diseases such as arthritis • Monitoring of tumor response • Contrast mechanisms and multimodality methods Offering a concise description of the particular problems involved in optical tomography, this reference illustrates DOT’s fundamental foundations and the principle of image reconstruction.

“I found something of interest, useful, and valuable in every chapter. Each is written for, if not exactly an expert, at least someone competent in the general broad field of which the chapter is a part, and it's written by someone who is obviously extremely competent in the specialty represented by the chapter. The material is basic, but it's far from being ‘dumbed down’; one has to work to get the full benefit of the text. Appropriately enough, most chapters assume that the reader has a basic knowledge of the field. The chapters that I am competent to critique are excellent, well and expertly written."

Electromagnetic Waves, Materials, and Computation with MATLAB® Dikshitulu K. Kalluri

University of Massachusetts, Lowell, USA

Readily available commercial software enables engineers and students to perform routine calculations and design without necessarily having a sufficient conceptual understanding of the anticipated solution. The software is so userfriendly that it usually produces a beautiful colored visualization of that solution, often camouflaging the fact that the program is executing the wrong simulation of the physical problem. Electromagnetic Waves, Materials, and Computation with MATLAB® takes an integrative modern approach to the subject of electromagnetic analysis by supplementing quintessential "old school" information and methods with instruction in the use of newer commercial software such as MATLAB and methods including FDTD. Delving into the electromagnetics of bounded simple media, equations of complex media, and computation, this text includes: • Appendices that cover a wide range of associated issues and techniques • A concluding section containing an array of problems, quizzes, and examinations A downloadable component for instructors including PowerPoint® slides, solutions to problems, and more

Striking a balance between theoretical and practical aspects, internationally recognized expert Dikshitulu Kalluri clearly illustrates how intuitive approximate solutions are derived. Providing case studies and practical examples throughout, he examines the role of commercial software in this process, also covering interpretation of findings. Kalluri’s extensive experience teaching this subject enables him to streamline and convey material in a way that helps readers master conceptual mathematical aspects. This gives them confidence in their ability to use high-level software to write code, but it also ensures that they will never be solely dependent on such programs. Catalog no.
