    Course Highlights

    This course has virtually all of its materials online, including a full set of lecture notes and movies and demos, in addition to quizzes and other materials used by students in the course. The materials are largely based on the course textbook, Electromagnetic Waves, co-written by Professor David Staelin (see the publisher's page for more information).

    Course Description

    This course explores electromagnetic phenomena in modern applications, including wireless communications, circuits, computer interconnects and peripherals, optical fiber links and components, microwave communications and radar, antennas, sensors, micro-electromechanical systems, motors, and power generation and transmission. Fundamentals covered include: quasistatic and dynamic solutions to Maxwell's equations; waves, radiation, and diffraction; coupling to media and structures; guided and unguided waves; resonance; and forces, power, and energy.

    The instructors of this course extend a general acknowledgment to the many students and instructors who have made major contributions to the 6.013 course materials over the years, and apologize for any residual errors that may remain in these written materials.
