Radio channels

Yksittäinen kurssi

Max amount of FITech students: 30

Persons without a valid study right to a Finnish university have preference to this course.

Course contents

  • The radio channels of different radio systems.
  • Characterization of radio waves and propagation media.
  • Different mechanisms of radio wave propagation: direct free-space propagation, absorption, scattering, reflection, refraction, diffraction, surface and ground waves, ionospheric waves and multipath propagation.
  • Statistical description of fading radio channel.
  • Principles of the radio channel modelling.
  • Noise calculations.
  • Radio wave propagation phenomena over fixed terrestrial, ionospheric and satellite links.
  • Radio channel modelling for outdoor mobile systems.
  • Radio wave propagation inside or into buildings.
  • Radio channels of mobile satellite links.
  • Slow fading.
  • Multipath propagation and its effects on narrowband and wideband radio channels.
  • MIMO radio channels.
  • Measurement methods of radio channels.
  • Atmospheric attenuation on terahertz frequency bands.

Learning outcomes

After completing the course, the student

  • will be able to define what the radio channel is and is able to distinguish it into modellable parts
  • knows different radio wave propagation mechanisms
  • can apply physical and empirical radio channel models
  • is able to analyse which are the dominating propagation mechanisms in different environments
  • will know how to measure the properties of different radio channels.
