Gordon
McKay Professor of Applied Physics & EE 
Course description [Course syllabus] Electromagnetism (mostly classical electromagnetism, but with some flavor of quantum electrodynamics in a certain set of topics) and its applications in science and technology: * Maxwell's equations  electrostatics, magnetostatics, electromagnetic induction, and displacement current; * Electromagnetic waves (light, micorwaves, etc); * Electromagnetic wave propagation through media discontinuity; * Guided electromagnetic waves  transmission lines and waveguides; * Electromagnetic resonators/cavities and microwave circuits; * Electromagnetic radiation (mostly classical /w a bit of quantum) and antenna; * Interactions between electromagnetic waves and solidstate dielectrics and conductors  optics and plasmonics of solids; * Optical devices; * Origin of colors; * Interference and diffraction; * Nuclear magnetic resonance and magnetic resonance imaging; * Diamagnetism, paramagnetism, and ferromagnetism; * Lasers and masers; * Black body radiation, noise, and radio astronomy; * Radar and wireless communication systems; * Electromagnetism and the theory of special relativity (if time permits).
