Nanoscale Microwave Engineering targets new trends in microwave engineering by downscaling components and devices for industrial purposes such as miniaturization and function densification, in association with the new approach of activation by a confined optical remote control. It covers the fundamental groundwork of the structure, property, characterization methods and applications of 1D and 2D nanostructures, along with providing the necessary knowledge of atomic structure, how it relates to the material band-structure and how this in turn leads to the amazing properties of these structures. It thus provides new graduates and post-doctorates with a resource equipping them with the knowledge to undertake their research. The purpose of this book is to give readers the elements required to enter the world of nano-architects for microwave nanosystems.
The first chapter is dedicated to nanotechnology-based materials for ultrafast microwave applications and their interactions with light, before moving on to an exploration of EM material characterization at nanoscale in Chapter 2. The third chapter is devoted to nanotechnology-based components and devices, reviewing existing components and a stateoftheart with these technologies (active). Chapter 4 focuses on the engineering of new optically controlled microwave functions based on 2D and 1D semiconductor materials. Finally, the conclusion draws on various perspectives of this new field of optically controlled low dimensionality materials.


1. Nanotechnology-based Materials and their Interaction with Light.
2. Electromagnetic Material Characterization at Nanoscale.
