Due to the spectacular growth of electronic systems and the steady demand for new services with increased functionality, the development of more efficient measurement techniques has become of paramount importance. This practical resource details the cutting-edge Modulated Scatterer Technique, which offers you a low-invasive and rapid method for testing and measuring systems and equipment used in a wide range of electronic engineering applications. The book helps you understand how devices and antennas operate, see how signals travel along connecting lines, determine which areas of an antenna are active, and pinpoint where radiation takes place. It teaches you how to locate current electric field concentrations that might produce hot spots or breakdown in devices and antennas, and helps you detect where fields are particularly low. You learn how to reduce electromagnetic interference, determine far field patterns of large antennas for satellite and space communications, and observe penetrable materials to detect faults and make non-invasive measurements. Extensively referenced with 125 illustrations and 100 equations.
