Prof. Filipovic's research is in the area of antennas and applied electromagnetics. Emphasis is on frequency independent, ultra-wideband antennas and antenna arrays, optical antennas, direction finding front-ends, use of microfabrication technologies for millimeter wave systems, high-power microwaves, passive microwave components, EM wave propagation, electronic warfare, and application of electromagnetic modeling for nano-meter size wires' metrology.
ECEN 3400 - Electromagnetic Fields and Waves
Electromagnetic fields are covered at an introductory level, starting with electrostatics and continuing with DC current, magnetostatics, time-varying magnetic fields, waves on transmission lines, Maxwell's equations and the basics of plane waves. The use of fields in inductors, capacitors, resistors, transformers, and energy and power concepts are studied.
ECEN 5134 - Electromagnetic Radiation and Antennas
Covers elementary sources and antennas, cylindrical wire antennas, loop antennas, radiation patterns and antenna gain, aperture sources such as horns and dishes, specialized antennas such as microstrip patches, linear and circular arrays, mutual coupling and ground effects, ray and numerical formulations, transmission formulas, and antenna applications.
