For grade five one has to pass an oral exam. Home page:

The course gives an understanding of the physics of transmission lines, waveguides, and optical fibres. It also gives the microwave technique used in accelerators. Many of the applications are taken from the accelerators that are to used at MAX IV and ESS. The course gives an introduction to the analytical and numerical methods that are used in microwave technique. The students get skills in measurements with network analyser. They also get experience in treating extensive applied problems and projects.
