Microwave Measurement Fundamentals
Presenter: Ron Ginley, NIST, RF Electronics Group, RF Technology Division
Course Description (1- day course):
Have you ever wanted to learn more about microwave measurement techniques? This session is the place to be! An introduction to the measurement concepts for microwave power and scattering-parameters will be covered. Specific topics covered will include transmission line theory, practical handling or the do’s and don’ts for transmission lines and microwave connectors, Vector Network Analyzer calibration/measurements and real world sources of uncertainties, microwave power detectors types, power measurements and uncertainties, and the session will conclude with a discussion of verification techniques for microwave measurements.
