Transverse magnetic waves in parallel planes

 DEFINITION TRANSVERSE MAGNETIC (TM) WAVES OR E WAVES   :

In this case, the component of magnetic field vector H lies in the plane transverse to the direction of propagation that is there is no component of H along the direction of propagation where as component of electric field vector E lies along the direction of propagation.

Derivation transverse magnetic waves between parallel planes:

As the direction of propagation is assumed as z-direction, therefore,

Hz = 0, Ez not equals to 0

By substituting Hz = 0 in equation, we get

Hx = 0, Ey = 0,and Ex not equals to 0, Hy not equals to 0

Now write wave equation for free space in term of H Continue reading “Transverse magnetic waves in parallel planes”
