The subject gives practical knowledge dealing with emerging technology in new progressive frequency bands. It gives the basement of millimeter and submillimeter technology and mutual interactions submm and optical technology. In frame of the subject the theoretical principles as well as specific approaches to solution of transmission lines, subsystems and links in mm and submm region are mentioned.

An active attendance of tutorials together with elaborated semester project have to be fulfilled to reach an ungraded assessment. Knowledge of the lectures is highly required. For an additional self-study, the literature [1]–[5] can be used.

Proportional contribution of the exam on the overall grading – 80%
