ET4014 Propagation of radio waves

Not running

Topics: Radio propagation, applied to wireless indoor/mobile communication, broadcasting, remote sensing and radar

Radio communication relies on radiowaves for the transmission of information. The propagation medium can change the characteristics of the radiowaves, and affects the quality of the radio link. The focus of the course will be on radio propagation, applied to wireless indoor/mobile communication, broadcasting, remote sensing and radar.

Material of this course is helpful for students to extend their theoretical knowledge on radio wave propagation and understanding of radio transmission. The mobile/indoor radio propagation channel, path loss, fading, received signal characteristics, diversity, interference, as well as propagation aspect of spread spectrum networks will be studied. Furthermore, the atmospheric effects of radio wave propagation is contemplated followed by study of propagation of radar waves.

The aim of this course is to extend students' theoretical knowledge on radio wave propagation and enhance their understanding of radio transmission. Major subjects such as propagation mechanisms in the mobile/indoor radio channels, path loss, fading, received signal characteristics, diversity, interference, as well as propagation aspect of spread spectrum networks will be studied. Atmospheric effects and the way in which attenuation and multipath propagation can be established due to atmospheric structure is studied together with the effect this can have on the received signal. Significant propagation effects of radar waves will also be studied.

This course was running till 2014-2015 educational year. An extended list of topics, related to the propagation of radio waves, now is covered in the course EE4565 Propagation and Scattering of EM waves
