Kamal Sarabandi's Teaching
Teaching and development of courses and laboratories in the area of electromagnetics
and circuits in both undergraduate and graduate levels.
- Measurements Laboratory.
Advanced topics in microwave measurements; power,
spectrum and noise measurements, introduction to state-of-the-art
microwave test equipment, methods for measuring the dielectric
constant of materials, polarimetric radar cross section measurements,
near field antenna pattern measurements, electromagnetic emission
measurement (EM compatibility). Followed by a project that will
include design, analysis, and construction of a microwave subsystem.
(The funds for the laboratory equipment was entirely acquired
from external sources, about $400K).
- Theory of Wave Scattering from Rough Surfaces and Random Media.
Advanced topics in the area of microwave and millimeter-wave
remote sensing; Dyadic Green's function of layered media, scattering
by random rough surfaces (small perturbation method and Kirchhoff
Approach), scattering by periodic surfaces, analytical scattering
models for discrete scatterers, low frequency effective permittivity
of random media (dielectric mixing formulas), effective permittivity
tensor of periodic media, propagation in a sparse random media
(effective field approximation), optical theorem, numerical and
experimental evaluation of effective permittivity, Analytical
wave theory (Born approximation and Strong permittivity fluctuations),
Radiative transfer theory.
