This systematic and well-written book provides an in-depth analysis of all the major areas of the subject such as fields, waves and lines. It is written in a simple and an easy-to-understand language. Beginning with a discussion on vector calculus, the book elaborately explains electrostatics, including the concepts of electric force and field intensity, electric displacement, Gauss law, conductors, dielectrics and capacitors. This is followed by a detailed study of magnetostatics, covering Biot–Savart law, Lorentz’s force law and Ampere’s circuital law. Then, it discusses Maxwell’s equations that describe the time-varying fields and the wave theory which is the basis of radiation and wireless communications. Finally, the book gives a fair treatment to transmission line theory, which is a foundation course in mechanical engineering. The text is well-supported by a large number of solved and unsolved problems to enhance the analytical skill of the students. The problems are framed to test the conceptual understanding of the students. It also includes plenty of objective type questions with answers. It is intended as a textbook for the undergraduate students of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Electronics and Communication Engineering for their course on Electromagnetic Waves and Transmission Lines.

This book presents the basic principles, characteristics and applications of commonly used microwave devices used in the design of microwave systems. The book begins with a brief overview of the field of microwave engineering and then provides a thorough review of two prerequisite topics in electromagnetics, that is, electromagnetic field theory and transmission lines, so essential to know before analysing and designing microwave systems. The book presents the full spectrum of both passive and active microwave components. Hollow pipe waveguides are thoroughly analysed with respect to their field components and other important characteristics such as bandwidth, dispersive nature, various impedances, and attenuation parameters. The basic principles of various types of microwave junctions used for power division, addition, and in measurement systems, such as tees, directional-couplers, circulators, gyrators, etc. are explained, along with their scattering parameters required for the analysis of microwave circuits. The text also presents a comprehensive analytical treatment of microwave tubes in common use, such as klystrons, magnetrons, TWTs, and solid state sources such as Gunn diodes, IMPATT diodes, funnel diodes and PiN diodes, etc. Finally, the book describes the laboratory procedures for measurements of various parameters of circuits working at microwave frequencies. The book contains an instructional framework at the end of each chapter composed of questions, problems, and objective type questions to enable students to gain skills in applying the principles and techniques learned in the text. The book is appropriate for a course in Microwave Engineering at the level of both undergraduate and postgraduate students of Electronics and Communication Engineering.
Nikola Tesla was a major contributor to the electrical revolution that transformed daily life at the turn of the twentieth century. His inventions, patents, and theoretical work formed the basis of modern AC electricity, and contributed to the development of radio and television. Like his competitor Thomas Edison, Tesla was one of America's first celebrity scientists, enjoying the company of New York high society and dazzling the likes of Mark Twain with his electrical demonstrations. An astute self-promoter and gifted showman, he cultivated a public image of the eccentric genius. Even at the end of his life when he was living in poverty, Tesla still attracted reporters to his annual birthday interview, regaling them with claims that he had invented a particle-beam weapon capable of bringing down enemy aircraft.

Plenty of biographies glamorize Tesla and his eccentricities, but until now none has carefully examined what, how, and why he invented. In this groundbreaking book, W. Bernard Carlson demystifies the legendary inventor, placing him within the cultural and technological context of his time, and focusing on his inventions themselves as well as the creation and maintenance of his celebrity. Drawing on original documents from Tesla's private and public life, Carlson shows how he was an "idealist" inventor who sought the perfect experimental realization of a great idea or principle, and who skillfully sold his inventions to the public through mythmaking and illusion.


This major biography sheds new light on Tesla's visionary approach to invention and the business strategies behind his most important technological breakthroughs.

This text is intended for the undergraduate engineering students in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, and Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering, and those pursuing postgraduate courses in Applied Electronics and VLSI Design. With the electronic devices and chips becoming smaller and smaller, the sizes of circuits and transistors on the microchips are approaching atomic levels. And so, Very Large-Scale Integration (VLSI) Design refers to the process of placing hundreds of thousands of electronic components on a single chip which nearly all modern computer architectures employ, and this technology has assumed a significant role in today’s tech savvy world. This well-organized, up-to-date and compact text explains the basic concepts of MOS technology including the fabrication methods, MOS characteristic behaviour, and design processes for layouts, etc. in a crisp and easy-to-learn style. The latest and most advanced techniques for maximising performance, minimising power consumption, and achieving rapid design turnarounds are discussed with great skill by the authors. Key Features  Gives an in-depth analysis of MOS structure, device characteristics, modelling and MOS device fabrication techniques.  Provides detailed description of CMOS design of combinatorial, sequential and arithmetic circuits with emphasis on practical applications.  Offers an insight into the CMOS testing techniques for the design of VLSI circuits.  Gives a number of solved problems in VHDL and Verilog languages.  Provides a number of short answer questions to help the students during examinations.
