He is a Fulbright Fellow, Senior Member of IEEE, Fellow of IETE and Fellow VEDA Society.

The Book:
Microwave Engineering: Fundamentals, Design and Applications, Second Edition, emphasises the basic concepts, design techniques and applications of microwave engineering in a markedly different manner. Based on feedback from students and faculty, this new edition fully covers the latest AICTE syllabus for Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) students. It also covers the syllabus of most universities abroad, for graduate as well as post-graduate courses of ECE.

Salient features
⦁ All the special features and chapters of the first edition are preserved while additional new material finds a place.
⦁ Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools and 3D electromagnetic field simulators have been used to solve design problems in relevant chapters.
⦁ Analytical derivations for klystron, TWT, magnetron and gyrotron have been included in Chapter 9, while those for gunn, IMPATT and MESFET/HEMT devices have been included in Chapter 10.
⦁ Simulator-based design of microwave power amplifiers has been included in Chapter 11.
⦁ Microwave mixers have been discussed in detail in Chapter 12 with simulator-based design problems.
⦁ Radar Principle and Systems has been upgraded to Radar and Radio-aids to Navigation (Chapter 14).
⦁ RFID, RF MEMS for microwave components, microwave and THz imaging have been included as emerging applications in Chapter 19.
⦁ Review questions that help in self-assessment are provided in each chapter.
⦁ Recapitulations in each chapter, have been given a new and concise avatar.
⦁ New appendices on field analysis of coaxial line, a brief analytical review of parallel-plate waveguide, non-linearity and distortion have been included in the website along with the existing appendices.
