A single text that incorporates all of the theoretical principles and practical aspects of planar transmission line devices - since the earl y development of striplines, it has been sought by countless microwave engineers, researchers, and students. With the publication of Network s and Devices using Planar Transmission Lines, the search for that one authoritative resource is over. This is more than just a handbook, m uch more than a theoretical treatment. It's the ideal integration of t he theory and applications of planar transmission lines and devices. S triplines, microstrips, slot lines, coplanar waveguides and strips, ph ase shifters, hybrids, and more - the author examines them all. For ea ch type of structure, his treatment is complete and self-contained.

Editorial Reviews

In this text, Di Paolo (chief research engineer at Telit, Microwave Satellite Communication Division, in Rome) integrates theory and applications of planar transmission lines and devices. The 11 chapters present topics such as fundamental theory of transmission lines, microstrips, striplines, coupled microstrips and striplines, microstrip and stripline devices, slot lines, coplanar waveguides and strips, and phase shifters. The appendices cover solution methods for electrostatic problems; wave equation, waves, and dispersion; diffusion parameters and multiport devices, resonant elements, "Q", and losses; charges, currents, magnetic fields, and forces; the magnetic properties of materials; the electromagnetic field and the ferrite; and symbols, operators definition, and analytical expressions.

    good book

    This book pepresents an appropriate link between the elettromagnetic theoretical aspectsand the practical microwave designer problems. I think this book cannot be missing in a microwave engineer's bookcase.
