How to be good in Electromagnetic Theory: Debrup Mukherjee, a MTech student of NIT Trichy writes,

"While I requested Dr S Raghavan (senior most Professor(H.A.G.) Retd. N.I.T., Trichy ) and the fortunate
scholar of Prof.Bharathi Bhat and Prof.S K KOUL (IIT Delhi) to give concluding remarks, following note
came out.
“It's not 'Divergence' and 'Curl" alone that make Electro-Magnetic Theory. For the design of the M.I.C. components Transmission Line theory approach will be enough and makes one understand the subject. The only two dimensions width 'w' based on the wheeler's curve (other nomograms) and length (anyone lambda within infinite lambdas between '0' and '1' makes the design in any of the seventy-two planar transmission lines possible. different substrate materials and frequency considerations are child's play. At microwave frequencies, there are only two elements 'L' and 'C". If an equivalent circuit of any component, circuit or system is obtained, the design layout will emanate in seconds and with EASE. If four maxwells equations, four boundary conditions, and Helmholtz equations are understood, then EMT is easier than popular digital electronics and it will be 'MIGITAL’”."

New for December 2021: 

"INDISPENSIBLE IMPORTANCE OF NOMOGRAMS in Microwave Integrated Circuit Components Design". One cannot imagine how much cumbersome and complicated it would have been had ‘Wheelers curve‘,‘Coupled circuits spacing and width computation NOMOGRAMs had not come into practical usage thanks to heritage stalwarts like. Wheeler, SB Cohn. When there are standard Nomo grams for Microstrip, Strip line and Coupled lines, there are characteristic curves (in terms of spacing’s, widths and characteristic Impedances for Coplanar Waveguide, Finline, Slot line, coplanar Strip , and other variants of planar transmission lines. An intelligent thought sparked in the young mind of SAIKIRAN ANGALI, who is pursuing in communication Systems of National Institute of Technology, Trichirappalli, under the guidance of Prof.S.Raghavan (Microwave Integrated Circuit Domain).Saikiran is trying to achieve standard Nomo grams as ready reckoners so as to get the width, spacing dimensions and make the M.I.C.Layout designers feel at ease. Certain nomogram for better visibility and usage, he has done with 3 dimensions too which is little uncommon.

"Design and Layouts of MIC components for microstrip and stripline using   Python GUI".Microstrip, Stripline Stub branch line coupler, Hybrid Ring, Rate race coupler are designed for a given Microwave frequency, coupling coefficient and substrates thickness. By using them one can get complete Design values and Layout in mm’s at a single touch of the key on a GUI. This Python self-coded miraculous effort was done by Kamjula Divya, a Post Graduate student of NIT Trichy under the guidance of Prof.S.Raghavan. This technique can even be extended to Backward wave coupler including Power dividers both equal and Unequal too. This workaholic effort is due to complete understanding of M.I.C. Design methodology and expertise in Python coding and GUI. The real beauty is one will be able to get 1:1 scale layout for any specifications.

New for May 2021: A research scholar from NITT, DrV KRUSHNA KANTH participated in a DRDO dare to dream innovation contest, winning the FIRST prize amongst 3000 applicants. The details of the contest can be found here. Nowadays, defense technology mainly focuses on the strategic and stealth sectors. The modern aircraft which belong to class 5 and class 6 are advanced warfare vehicles. These aircraft are the game changers of modern-day wars. The radar systems used in this modern aircraft are more sophisticated and need extreme protection from the detection of enemy radars. In this regard, Dr. V KRUSHNAKANTH and Dr. S RAGHAVAN, ("MICROWAVE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT" LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD WINNER) proposed a frequency selective radome to protect the radar system. The proposed radome helps in making our targets invisible to the enemy radars and protects the aircraft from firing.

New for January 2021! Once again, students at NITT have thoughtfully provided us with the results of their work. Unless specified otherwise, all projects were completed under the direction of Dr. S. Raghavan. 

Alok TJ presents A 3-D Wheelers Curve.  The Wheeler’s curve calculates microstrip impedance from paramaters w/h (width divided by height) and diectric constant.  It is plotted by merging two curves from either side of the point of discontinuity  where w/h=1, and then plotted on one graph for complete range of (w/h) values. From the Wheeler’s Curve Plot, corresponding values of Impedance and (w/h) on the curve is taken with uniform linear separation and made into a tabular column for each standard dielectric substrate. All the values obtained from the Wheeler’s curve are consolidated in a single chart for Microstrip line designers, and presented (for the first time that we know of!) as a 3D surface plot.
RS Anju sent us some coplanar waveguide characteristic curves, helpful in determining the width and spacing for any dielectric at any frequency. (You may also want to download the python code used to create these plots). 
A Windows application that designs Stepped-Impedance Low Pass Filters using Python by Debrup Mukherjee. This paper describes how to create your own application that takes the filter specifications as input and designs the complete layout by itself. All we need to have is a good understanding of how microwave filters work and what are the steps taken by an experienced designer to design the layout. The way an experienced designer designs filters, the same way the process can be automated and make a computer do all the calculations and all the hard work for us. The software, that we will learn to write in this page takes care of everything and gives us the complete layout with all the dimensions.
Sumadhara Gunupati shared a paper on "Magical Lambda" - It has it's own Microwaves101 page! 

Govardhan has written a Generalized Python program that can calculate:

1.Effective ABCD Parameters of any M.I.C Components and then find out it's equivalent S-Parameters.

2. Starting from 2-stub branch-line coupler, it will compute 3 stub branch-line coupler, Hybrid Ring, Rat race.

3.Will compute the design parameters of stub branch-line couplers and hybrid ring for any coupling coefficient.

4. Indirectly it will obtain the Overall ABCD parameters and then the S-matrix

Ekansh Bharadwaj has created a Generalized Filter starting from Binomial and Equal ripple filter coefficients. 

The uniqueness of this project is that it is a Standalone application made in MATLAB 2020a. There is no need to install MATLAB to run this application. If anyone wants to install it, he/she can install it without any problem, it will run perfectly. This application is able to Design a Low pass filter using an unconventional method of software usage provided coefficient to design a filter. He has also used Richard's transformation and Kuroda's identity to design this low pass filter step-wise.

Ekansh Bhardwaj dedicated his work to Dr. S RAGHAVAN, the LIFETIME AWARD winner in MICROWAVE INTEGRATED CIRCUITS.

Thank you to all these students for their detailed and creative work, and to Dr. S. Raghavan for sharing it with us and promoting the site.

Also during this month, Microwaves101 offers congratulations to the Indian Mars Orbiter Mission Mangalyaan, that entered orbit on 24 September 2014. Bravo!

Here are some words from NITT regarding this historic mission:

Microwave Group of NITT celebrated the proud victory of Mars Orbiter Mission

All health parameters of the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) are normal and the its performance will be as per the computed time” said the proud scientist and the project Director of MOM S. Arunan few days before in NITT during his talk to the Electronics and Communication Engineering association students. His words came true when the whole world witnessed Indian Space Scientists' latest space marvel Mangalyan being put in orbit around Mars at the very first attempt. Along with the whole country, the Microwave group, are jubilant for many reasons. Starting from N. Valarmathi. the Project Director of Radar Image Satellite (RiSAT), P.K. Anuradha, the Project Director of GSAT 12 and finally MOM Project Director Arunan had inspired every student of the department to aspire to become space scientists. The Microwave group headed by Dr. S. Raghavan, Professor, and the ECE department celebrated with great joy and satisfaction.  The scholars and the students had designed the colorful model of the MOM in the form of rangoli. Microwave Engineering has played an active role in the mission. One of the present scholars of the Microwave group, Mr.S. Purusothaman is from the Compact Antenna Test Facility (CATF) of ISRO, Bangalore where High Gain Antenna of Mars mission was exclusively tested for the radiation pattern, gain polarization and isolation before integrating with MARS space craft. The communication systems for the Mars mission are responsible for the challenging task of communication management up to a distance of 400 million km. One student Nitesh Jha from Nepal has told that he feels proud to study in India where extraordinary achievement on space science had happened. Another scholar wished that ISRO should excel NASA in space research.  Other proud comments include , "Super power" is exhibited , at the rate of 11 Rs/km the mission is the world’s cheapest interplanetary mission , "the cost is lesser than  the budget (100 million dollars) of the English movie ‘Gravity’ ", and "I will work hard to become a space scientist’". For any space mission volume and weight are very critical and the biggest advantage of microwave is miniaturization. The group is doubly happy to see the practical usage of Microwave Engineering in the space mission which made India scale high!
