Paul Diament joined the EE faculty in 1963. His teaching and research areas are in all phases of electromagnetics and wave propagation, including microwaves, antennas, optics, radiation statistics, plasmas, wave interactions, relativistic electron beams, and transient electromagnetic phenomena. He is the author of Wave Transmission and Fiber Optics (Macmillan, 1990). His recent book is titled Dynamic Electromagnetics (Prentice Hall, 1999).
