The Smith Chart™

Dr. Cynthis Furse (U. of Utah photo credit - note Smith Chart earrings!) - RF CafeDr. Cynthia Furse (note Smith Chart earrings in her photo), a Professor of Electromagnetics at the University of Utah's Department of Electrical Engineering, has produced a very nice video series that covers a wide range of topics and techniques on the venerable Smith Chart. The ten videos begin with an introduction, progress through reflection coefficients, shorts and opens, impedance matching, a slot line example, and finally a summary.

Dr. Furse rose to worldwide fame about a decade ago a least partially based on the colorful handmade quit she created with a Smith Chart pattern; it is an exquisite example of juxtapositioning the traditional with the contemporary. Of course holding at least 13 patents and conducting research in bio-electromagnetics, antennas, wireless communication, electrical fault location, electrical properties of sea ice, and engineering education outreach helped as well.

She has her students sign when they have finished their design projects.

Dr. Furse has many RF and microwave instructional videos on YouTube. She is also an avid outdoorswoman and craftswoman who loves horses... like my daughter, Sally.
