In Periodic Structures, Hwang gives readers a comprehensive understanding of the underlying physics in meta-materials made of periodic structures, providing a rigorous and firm mathematical framework for analyzing their electromagnetic properties. The book presents scattering and guiding characteristics of periodic structures using the mode-matching approach and their applications in electromagnetic engineering.
Provides an analytic approach to describing the wave propagation phenomena in photonic crystals and related periodic structures
Covers guided and leaky mode propagation in periodic surroundings, from fundamentals to practical device applications
Demonstrates formulation of the periodic system and applications to practical electromagnetic / optical devices, even further to artificial dielectrics
Introduces the evolution of periodic structures and their applications in microwave, millimeter wave and THz.
Written by a high-impact author in electromagnetics and optics
Contains mathematical derivations which can be applied directly to MATLAB programsThe book is primarily intended for graduate students in electronic engineering, optics, physics, and applied physics, or researchers working with periodic structures. Advanced undergraduates in EE, optics, applied physics applied math, and materials science who are interested in the underlying physics of meta-materials, will also be interested in this text.
