Microwave Theory and Techniques Society/Electron Devices Society

Orange County Joint Chapter



Welcome to the OC MTT-S/ED-S Home Page!!!!


This page is designed to inform "Net-Surfers" in the Orange County area of our existence. The OC MTT-S/ED-S Joint Chapter was approved on April 30th, 2003 and will begin holding meetings soon. Please, stay tuned!

About the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S)

The MTT-S is a transnational society with more than 9,000 members and 80 chapters worldwide. Our society promotes the advancement of microwave theory and its applications, usually at frequencies from 200 MHz to 1 THz and beyond.

For more than 50 years the MTT-S has worked to advance the professional standing of its members and enhance the quality of life for all people through the development and application of microwave technology. As we enter into an exciting future our mission is to continue to understand and influence microwave technology.

About the Electron Devices Society (EDS)  

The field of interest for EDS is all aspects of the physics, engineering, theory and phenomena of electron and ion devices such as elemental and compound semiconductor devices, organic and other emerging materials based devices, quantum effect devices, optical devices, displays and imaging devices, photovoltaics , solid-state sensors and actuators, solid-state power devices, high frequency devices, micromechanics, tubes and other vacuum devices.

The society is concerned with research, development, design, and manufacture related to the materials, processing, technology, and applications of such devices, and the scientific, technical and other activities that contribute to the advancement of this field.

About the OC MTT-S/EDS Joint Chapter
This chapter will aim at providing its members with interesting talks on a variety of topics in the microwave and electron devices fields.

The meetings are open to anyone. You do not have to be an IEEE member to attend. However, if you are interested in becoming an IEEE and/or an MTT-S and EDS member, please visit the IEEE Home Page . Our chapter meetings provide an open forum for discussion, as well as a place to network with your fellow engineers. Who knows, you might even find a job!!
