Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 528

View: 5502

This textbook provides a fundamental approach to RF and microwave engineering. It is unusual for the thoroughness with which these areas are presented. The effect is that the reader comes away with a deep insight not only of the design formulation but answers to how and why those formulations work. This is especially valuable for engineers whose careers involve research and product development, wherein the applicability of the applied principles must be understood. The scope of this book extends from topics for a first course in electrical engineering, in which impedances are analyzed using complex numbers, through the introduction of transmission lines that are analyzed using the Smith Chart, and on to graduate level subjects, such as equivalent circuits for obstacles in hollow waveguides, analyzed using Green’s Functions. This book is a virtual encyclopedia of circuit design methods. Despite the complexity, topics are presented in a conversational manner for ease of comprehension. The book is not only an excellent text at the undergraduate and graduate levels, but is as well a detailed reference for the practicing engineer. Consider how well informed an engineer will be who has become familiar with these topics as treated in High Frequency Techniques: (in order of presentation) Brief history of wireless (radio) and the Morse code U.S. Radio Frequency Allocations Introduction to vectors AC analysis and why complex numbers and impedance are used Circuit and antenna reciprocity Decibel measure Maximum power transfer Skin effect Computer simulation and optimization of networks LC matching of one impedance to another Coupled Resonators Uniform transmission lines for propagation VSWR, return Loss and mismatch error The Telegrapher Equations (derived) Phase and Group Velocities The Impedance Transformation Equation for lines (derived) Fano’s and Bode’s matching limits The Smith Chart (derived) Slotted Line impedance measurement Constant Q circles on the Smith Chart Approximating a transmission line with lumped L’s and C’s ABCD, Z, Y and Scattering matrix analysis methods for circuits Statistical Design and Yield Analysis of products Electromagnetic Fields Gauss’s Law Vector Dot Product, Divergence and Curl Static Potential and Gradient Ampere’s Law and Vector Curl Maxwell’s Equations and their visualization The Laplacian Rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinates Skin Effect The Wave Equation The Helmholtz Equations Plane Propagating Waves Rayleigh Fading Circular (elliptic) Polarization Poynting’s Theorem EM fields on Transmission Lines Calculating the impedance of coaxial lines Calculating and visualizing the fields in waveguides Propagation constants and waveguide modes The Taylor Series Expansion Fourier Series and Green’s Functions Higher order modes and how to suppress them Vector Potential and Retarded Potentials Wire and aperture antennas Radio propagation and path loss Electromagnetic computer simulation of structures Directional couplers The Rat Race Hybrid Even and Odd Mode Analysis applied to the backward wave coupler Network analyzer impedance and transmission measurements Two-port Scattering Parameters (s matrix) The Hybrid Ring coupler The Wilkinson power divider Filter design: Butterworth, Maximally flat & Tchebyscheff responses Filter Q Diplexer, Bandpass and Elliptic filters Richard’s Transformation & Kuroda’s Identities Mumford’s transmission line stub filters Transistor Amplifier Design: gain, biasing, stability, and conjugate matching Noise in systems, noise figure of an amplifier cascade Amplifier non-linearity, and spurious free dynamic range Statistical Design and Yield Analysis

Noch hat das Motto “Alles muss kleiner werden” nicht an Faszination verloren. Physikern, Ingenieuren und Medizinern erschließt sich mit der Nanotechnologie eine neue Welt mit faszinierenden Anwendungen. E.L. Wolf, Physik-Professor in Brooklyn, N.Y., schrieb das erste einführende Lehrbuch zu diesem Thema, in dem er die physikalischen Grundlagen ebenso wie die Anwendungsmöglichkeiten der Nanotechnologie diskutiert. Mittlerweile ist es in der 3. Aufl age erschienen und liegt jetzt endlich auch auf Deutsch vor. Dieses Lehrbuch bietet eine einzigartige, in sich geschlossene Einführung in die physikalischen Grundlagen und Konzepte der Nanowissenschaften sowie Anwendungen von Nanosystemen. Das Themenspektrum reicht von Nanosystemen über Quanteneff ekte und sich selbst organisierende Strukturen bis hin zu Rastersondenmethoden. Besonders die Vorstellung von Nanomaschinen für medizinische Anwendungen ist faszinierend, wenn auch bislang noch nicht praktisch umgesetzt. Der dritten Aufl age, auf der diese Übersetzung beruht, wurde ein neuer Abschnitt über Graphen zugefügt. Die Diskussion möglicher Anwendungen in der Energietechnik, Nanoelektronik und Medizin wurde auf neuesten Stand gebracht und wieder aktuelle Beispiele herangezogen, um wichtige Konzepte und Forschungsinstrumente zu illustrieren. Der Autor führt mit diesem Lehrbuch Studenten der Physik, Chemie sowie Ingenieurwissenschaften von den Grundlagen bis auf den Stand der aktuellen Forschung. Die leicht zu lesende Einführung in dieses faszinierende Forschungsgebiet ist geeignet für fortgeschrittene Bachelor- und Masterstudenten mit Vorkenntnissen in Physik und Chemie. Stimmen zur englischen Vorauflage „Zusammenfassend ist festzustellen, dass Edward L. Wolf trotz der reichlich vorhandenen Literatur zur Nanotechnologie ein individuell gestaltetes einführendes Lehrbuch gelungen ist. Es eignet sich – nicht zuletzt dank der enthaltenen Übungsaufgaben – bestens zur Vorlesungsbegleitung für Studierende der Natur- und Ingenieurwissenschaften sowie auch spezieller nanotechnologisch orientierter Studiengänge.“ Physik Journal „... eine sehr kompakte, lesenswerte und gut verständliche Einführung in die Quantenmechanik sowie ihre Auswirkungen auf die Materialwissenschaften ...“ Chemie Ingenieur Technik

Organische Molekulare Festkörper

Einführung in die Physik von pi-Systemen

Page: 411

Die Untersuchung der physikalischen Eigenschaften Organischer Festkörper, insbesondere solcher, deren Bausteine konjugierte p-Elektronen-Systeme enthalten, ist in den letzten Jahrzehnten zu einem aktiven und attraktiven Teilgebiet der Festkörperphysik geworden. Hierfür gibt es mehrere Gründe. Zum einen ist es die Vielfalt von Eigenschaften, die sie von den anorganischen Festkörpern unterscheiden. Dazu gehört zum Beispiel die Energieleitung durch Excitonen, also ohne Transport von Ladungen, über größere Distanzen. Mit Hilfe der Chemie lassen sich diese Eigenschaften in weiten Grenzen variieren. Weiter verspricht man sich neue Anwendungsmöglichkeiten, etwa als Organische Leuchtdioden oder in einer neuartigen molekularen Elektronik, welche die auf anorganischen Halbleitern beruhende Elektronik erweitert und ergänzt. Schließlich sind Organische Festkörper ein Bindeglied zwischen Physik und Biologischer Physik. So hat etwa die Organische Festkörperphysik wichtige Beiträge zur Aufklärung der Elementarprozesse der Photosynthese geleistet. Das Buch ist für Studenten im Wahl- oder Spezial-Vorlesungsbereich geschrieben und für solche, die sich selber forschend in diesem Gebiet betätigen wollen. Darüber hinaus wendet es sich an alle Physiker, Physikochemiker und Chemiker, die ihre Kenntnisse über Festkörper erweitern wollen. Das Buch bietet eine Einführung in die Grundlagen mit Verweisen auf ausführlichere Literatur bis hin zu Problemen der aktuellen Forschung
