This book covers the study of electromagnetic wave theory and describes how electromagnetic technologies affect our daily lives.From ER to ET: How Electromagnetic Technologies Are Changing Our Lives explores electromagnetic wave theory including its founders, scientific underpinnings, ethical issues, and applications through history. Utilizing a format of short essays, this book explains in a balanced, and direct style how electromagnetictechnologies are changing the world we live in and the future they may create for us. Quizzes at the end of each chapter provide the reader with a deeper understanding of the material. This book is a valuable resource for microwave engineers of varying levels of experience, and for instructors to motivate their students and add depth to their assignments. In addition, this book:
- Presents topics that investigate all aspects of electromagnetic technology throughout history
- Explores societal and global issues that relate to the field of electrical engineering (emphasized in current ABET accreditation criteria)
- Includes quizzes relevant to every essay and answers which explain technical perspectives
