ECEN 5264 - Electromagnetic Absorption, Scattering, and Propagation Course uri icon



  • Electromagnetic waves in communication, navigation, and remote sensing systems from radio to optical frequencies, including propagation in deterministic and random media. Topics include absorption and refraction by gases, discrete scattering by precipitation, clouds, and aerosols, continuous scattering by refractivity fluctuations, earth-space propagation and Faraday rotation in plasmas, and radiative transfer theory. Recommended prereqs are ECEN 3400 and ECEN 3410.
