    Courses Occasionally Offered

  • EEHS E3900y History of telecommunications: from the telegraph to the internet 3 pts. Lect: 3. Historical development of telecommunications from the telegraphy of the mid-1800s to the Internet at present. Included are the technologies of telephony, radio, and computer communications. The coverage includes both the technologies themselves and the historical events that shaped, and in turn were shaped by, the technologies. The historical development, both the general context and the particular events concerning communications, is presented chronologically. The social needs that elicited new technologies and the consequences of their adoption are examined. Throughout the course, relevant scientific and engineering principles are explained as needed. These include, among others, the concept and effective use of spectrum, multiplexing to improve capacity, digital coding, and networking principles. There are no prerequisites, and no prior scientific or engineering knowledge is required. SEAS students may not count this course as a technical elective. The course shares lectures with EEHS E4900, but the work requirements differ somewhat.

  • ELEN E3999x or y Electrical engineering design challenge 1 pt. Prerequisites: Approval by a faculty member who agrees to supervise the work. May be repeated for credit, but no more than 3 total points may be used for degree credit. Short-term design project organized as a faculty-led team competition. Particular design targets are set that vary by semester. A set of hardware and software constraints is specified. The project takes place over an advertised subset of the semester, beginning around the third week.

  • ELEN E4215y Analog filter synthesis and design 3 pts. Lect: 3. Prerequisites: ELEN E3201 and ELEN E3801, or equivalent. Approximation techniques for magnitude, phase, and delay specifications , transfer function realization sensitivity, passive LC filters, active RC filters, MOSFET-C filters, Gm-C filters, switched-capacitor filters, automatic tuning techniques for integrated filters. Filter noise. A design project is an integral part of the course.

  • ELEN E4302x or y Magnetic sensors and instruments for medical imaging 3 pts. Lect: 2.5, Lab: 0.5.Not offered in 2014-2015. Prerequisites: ELEN E3106, ELEN E3401 or the instructor's permission. Physics of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID). Design and operation of superconducting DC magnet, RF receiver, Josephson junction, and integrated SQUID. Principles of biomedical sensoring systems including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), SQUID magnetometer, and NMR spectroscopy. Medical image formation and processing.

  • ELEN E4350y VLSI design laboratory 3 pts. Lab: 3. Prerequisites: ELEN E4321 and E4312, or the instructor's permission. Design of a CMOS mixed-signal integrated circuit. The class divides up into teams to work on mixed-signal integrated circuit designs. The chips are fabricated to be tested the following term. Lectures cover use of computer-aided design tools, design issues specific to the projects, and chip integration issues. This course shares lectures with E6350 but the complexity requirements of integrated circuits are lower.

  • ELEN E4405x Classical nonlinear optics 3 pts. Lect: 3. Prerequisites: ELEN E4401. Waves in anisotropic media. Maxwell's equations and constitutive relations. Fresnel equations. Optical waves in anisotropic crystals. Birefringence. Waves in nonlinear media. Plasma model. Electro-optic, Pockels, and Kerr effects. Second harmonic generation and phase matching. Parametric amplification. Backward-wave oscillator. Acousto-optic beam deflection and light modulation.

  • ELEN E4420x Topics in electromagnetics 3 pts. Lect: 3.Not offered in 2014-2015. Prerequisites: Undergraduate electromagnetic theory. Selected topics in the theory and practice of electromagnetics, varying from year to year. Topic for current term will be available in the department office one month before registration.
