## More characteristics or properties of transverse electric and magnetic waves in parallel planes

Last time I have discussed the few characteristics or properties of transverse electric and magnetic waves in parallel planes. Let us discuss more properties of TE and TM waves like cut-off wavelength, guide wavelength, phase velocity, group velocity:

(a) Cut – off Wavelength

גc = υ0/fc

Put the value of υ0 and fc in above equation,

Or                        גc = 1/√ μ0ε0   2 α√ μ0ε0/m

גc = 2 α/m

The above is the expression for the cut-off wavelength. Continue reading “More characteristics or properties of transverse electric and magnetic waves in parallel planes”

## Waves between parallel planes

Let us discuss how waves propagate through parallel planes and derive the necessary relation of transverse electric and magnetic waves:

Assumptions :

(a)  Pair of parallel planes are perfectly conducting.

(b)  Separation between the planes is ‘a’ meter in x – direction.

(c)  Space between planes is perfect dielectric (σ = 0) of permittivity ε and permeability μ.

(d)  Planes are of infinite extent in the y and z direction. Continue reading “Waves between parallel planes”
