How the course contribute to the specific MILO(s) The course provides students with opportunities in antennas being fabricated on a printed circuit board, the dominant choice in industry in recent years. Students are required to complete assignments to gain experience in the analysis of basic antennas and arrays. An individual mini-project is allocated to allow students to practice the design of basic antennas for applications in wireless communications

Part III Keyword Syllabus: Antenna Fundamentals Overview, Wave equation and its solution, Hertzian dipole, transmitting antenna parameters, receiving antenna, antenna polarization, antenna measurement Wire antennas Electrically-small dipole, half-wave dipole, monopole, balun, folded dipole, loop antennas Antenna arrays Array factors, pattern multiplication, uniform array, mutual coupling, scan blindness, multidimensional array, feed network, switched-beam array High gain antennas Yagi-uda antenna, corner reflector antenna, Fresnel zone plate antenna Broadband antennas Travelling-wave antenna, helical antenna, frequency-independent antennas Aperture antennas Fields as sources of radiation, Huygen’s Principle, horn antenna, slot antenna, reflector antennas Microstrip antennas Basic characteristics, transmission line model, cavity model, feed techniques, bandwidth enhancement techniques, size reduction techniques, PIFA.
