EM Class by Jin Au Kong

Classroom is my stage of act, I love teaching.
I need many blackbords, water, fresh mints to stop my cough. No rings and Don't be late.

Prof. Kong says that this course explain the universe and it really does!

MIT Course: 6.630 Electromagnetics
2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, by HKN, MIT

An introductory subject on electromagnetics, emphasizing fundamental concepts and applications of Maxwell equations. Topics include: polarization, dipole antennas, wireless communications, forces and energy, phase matching, dielectric waveguides and optical fibers, transmission line theory and circuit concepts, antennas, and equivalent principle. Examples deal with electrodynamics, propagation, guidance, and radiation of electromagnetic waves.

MIT Course: 6.632 Electromagnetic Wave Theory
2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, by HKN, MIT

A graduate subject on electromagnetic wave theory, emphasizing mathematical approaches, problem solving, and physical interpretation. Topics include: waves in media, equivalence principle, duality and complementarity, Huygens' principle, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction, dyadic Green's functions, Lorentz transformation, and Maxwell-Minkowski theory. Examples deal with limiting cases of Maxwell's theory and diffraction and scattering of electromagnetic waves. Every Spring term.

2003 by HKN, MIT

Materials covered include: special relativity, electrodynamics of moving media, waves in dispersive media, microstrip integrated circuits, quantum optics, remote sensing, radiative transfer theory, scattering by rough surfaces, effective permittivities, random media, Green's functions for planarly layered media, integral equations in electromagnetics, method of moments, time domain method of moments, EM waves in periodic structures: photonic crystals and negative refraction.

“Kong is Awesome” ---Dated: April 30, 2006, Eta Kappa Nu, MIT
Lecturer: J. A. Kong
Lecturer's Rating: 6.8/7.0
WHAT'S HOT: Prof. Kong, Maxwell Stories
WHAT'S NOT: Too easy
Lecturer J. Kong (6.8/7.0, 26 responses) was described as one of the best lecturers at MIT. He derived everything from first principles and was an exciting lecturer. His stories about Maxwell were every entertaining.
The problem sets were useful, and not too long or difficult. Students mostly did not need to collaborate and they did not use bibles.
The textbook was written by the lecturer and it followed lectures closely. The book was mostly considered well-written.
The two quizzes were each worth 33% of the overall grade. Problems sets were the other 34%. The exams were open book (though not open notes) and were not very difficult. They questions were similar to problem sets.
