In this comprehensive book, all aspects of Millimeter Waves (MMWs) are explored with an emphasis on the fundamental aspects of the associated physical phenomena. Each chapter provides a review of the main aspects of the subject, including: fundamental limitations and prospects of semiconductor device application in MMW radio systems; multi-element arrays of semiconductor devices in MMW transceivers; active MMW dielectric waveguides; crystal growth processes in thin film Au-GaAs contact performance for MMW devices; local nonuniformities and potential patches at the interfaces of thin film structures in MMW semiconductor devices; and low-loss dielectric materials for MMW components. The Science and Technology of Millimeter Wave Components and Devices will be invaluable to researchers, university lecturers, industrial laboratories and medical institutions concerned with both the scientific and technological advances in the millimeter wave components and devices.
Vladimir E. Lyubchenko bnecame head of the Laboratory of Millimetre Wave Solid-State Electronics at IRE RAS and then from 1988 until the present day has been the deputy director of IRE RAS. He coordinates the research activity in microwave electronics, physics and technology of materials for solid-state electronics. Professor Lyubchenko has produced over 100 papers in this field and has received 12 Russian patents.
