Introduction to Plane Waves A plane wave is the simplest solution to Maxwell’s equations for a wave that travels through free space. The wave does not requires any conductors – it exists in free space. A plane wave is a good model for radiation from an antenna, if we are far enough away from the antenna. x z E H S 2 S E H

Vector Wave Equation Start with Maxwell’s equations in the phasor domain: Faraday’s law Ampere’s law Assume free space : We then have Ohm’s law: 6 E H H J E j j      J E = 0 0 0 E H H E j j      0 0 ,
Vector Wave Equation (cont.) Take the curl of the first equation and then substitute the second equation into the first one: Vector wave equation Define: Then Wavenumber of free space [ rad/m ] 7 0 0 0 E H E j j j         0 0 0 k   2 0 E E 0 k   0 0 E H H E j j     
Vector Helmholtz Equation Recall the vector Laplacian identity: Hence we have Also, from the divergence of the vector wave equation, we have: 8 Note: There can be no charge density in the sinusoidal steady state, in free space (or actually in any homogenous region of space). 2 0 E E 0 k   2 V V V      2 2 0 E E E 0 k     2 0 E E 0 k     E 0  0 0 1 1 E D 0 v   2 0 E E 0 k  
Hence we have: Vector Helmholtz equation Recall the property of the vector Laplacian in rectangular coordinates: Taking the x component of the vector Helmholtz equation, we have Vector Helmholtz Equation (cont.) Scalar Helmholtz equation 9 Reminder: This only works in rectangular coordinates.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
