Electromagnetic waves


Students will study plane-wave solutions of Maxwell's equations.  They will apply boundary conditions to dielectric-dielectric and dielectric-conductor interfaces and explore reflection and transmission.  Students will review the polarization properties of plane electromagnetic waves and review simple waveguides and cavity resonators.  They will also review geometrical and wave optics.
