Electromagnetic Materials and Measurements: RAM, Radome, and RAS

Course Description

The three-day Electromagnetic Materials and their Measurement course introduces the physical concepts that govern electromagnetic materials, composites, and metamaterials. This physics is then applied in lectures and hands-on laboratory demonstrations to introduce learners to a variety of concepts, including material measurement principles and techniques, measurement equipment and software, and procedures necessary to generate application-oriented material property databases. The course is designed to be half lecture, half laboratory, for a well-rounded approach that includes hands-on learning.
