The propagation characteristics of guided waves are different from wave propagation characteristics in free space.
The main objective of this chapter is to provide the conceptual behaviour of EM waves in guided structures. The topics include:
- fields and propagation characteristics between parallel plates
- fields and propagation characteristics in hollow rectangular and circular waveguides
- TE, TM and TEM waves
- cavity resonators
- solved problems, points/formulae to remember, objective and multiple choice questions and exercise problems.
Do you know?
The Transverse Electromagnetic (TEM) wave does not exist in a hollow waveguide.
In the previous chapter, propagation characteristics of uniform plane ...
