Department of Electromagnetic Field

Wireless communications belong to the fastest developing technical fields. Besides widely used mobile telephony systems, this field also includes many other both mobile and stationary communicating systems. Different types of radio modems are also built in the majority of electronic devices like PCs, tablets, notebooks, cameras, etc. With expected fast development of Internet of Things, operation of billions of wireless sensors is expected. The subject is common to all students of the Electronics and Communication study program, its main purpose is to teach all important aspects of this technical branch. Obtained knowledge should enable the students to design, project, adjust or manufacture any wireless communication system or its components. Besides wireless system analysis, the lectures include review of physical backgrounds, survey of the most important existing radio systems together with corresponding operational frequencies, description of electromagnetic wave propagation and related antennas. Instructions concerning propagation also cover behavior of EM waves in an urban environment or inside buildings. Lectures concerning analysis of typical wireless systems also cover description of related radio-frequency, microwave and mm-wave circuits and components. Exercises include practical calculations of wireless systems, computer analysis and synthesis of important structures and circuits, and related laboratory measurements.
