This lecture steps the student through coupled-mode theory using perturbation analysis. The primary objective, however, is to illustrate and explain coupled mode theory from a picture/qualitative perspective.
This course by Dr. Raymond C. Rumpf is intended to teach students about electromagnetic devices and how they may look and operate in coming decades. Special attention will be paid to periodic structures, metamaterials, and structures fabricated by 3D printing. Devices will be designed and analyzed using tools developed during the prerequisite course “Computational Electromagnetics” as well as some new tools developed in this course.
