Comprehensive, up-to-date, and applied coverage of modern microwave engineering

Complete with practical applications and clear design procedures, Pozar’s Third Edition of MICROWAVE ENGINEERING offers a comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of the field. Based on fundamental principles of electrical engineering, the text shows that microwave circuits and devices can be explained through the use of circuit theory, Maxwell’s equations, and related concepts.

Now updated and revised, this Third Edition features new material on active circuit design, nonlinear effects, and noise.

Highlight include:

  • New and revised coverage: The third Edition presents new materials on capacitively coupled resonator filters, RF MEMS, transistor power amplifiers, transistor oscillators, frequency multipliers, oscillator phase noise, and FET mixers, as well as substantially revised coverage of a number of topics.

  • Many examples covering both theory and design: Examples, including many that are new or revised for this edition, show how typical problems are solved, how typical designs are carried out, and how typical component designs perform.

  • A wide variety of problems: Problems, including many that are new or revised, also cover both theory and design. Answers to selected problems provide opportunities for self-assessment.

  • Discussion of both the how and the why of microwave engineering: The text begins with fundamental concepts, then builds on these to show how microwave components and circuits operate, and how they are designed.

  • Extra resource on the Web: The web site for this text includes a Laboratory Manual of experiments from the University of Massachusetts and related files for using Ansoft’s Serenade Microwave CAD package for several of the examples and problems in the book.

ISBN: 0-471-32282-2


A textbook for a two-semester course for senior or first-year graduate engineering students. Includes material for those with less than an undergraduate level background in electromagnetics. Emphasizes the fundamental concepts of Maxwell's equations, wave propagation, network analysis, and design principles. The second edition includes more coverage of active circuits, and to make room for it, drops some peripheral material included in the first, for which no date is given.
