ECE-3690, Third Exam April 16, 2008 100 minutes Closed Book (18 pts) 1. Answer the following questions: a. Which of the following structures can operate in TEM mode: coaxial cable, dielectric slab, parallel-plate waveguide, rectangular cavity resonator? Explain. b. Explain, briefly, the main reasons why rectangular waveguides are not suited for very low or very high frequency applications. c. Which of the following two guiding structures are used for high-speed long distance communications: Single mode optical fiber, Multi-mode optical fiber? Briefly explain. (25 pts) 2 . A distance of 3 cm separates the two plates in a parallel-plate waveguide. The width of each plate is 12cm, and the medium between the two plates is air. x z y a w i) How many modes can propagate simultaneously in this waveguide at f=12GHz. Identify those modes. ii) Calculate the phase velocities of the two lowest-order modes at 12GHz. iii) The total time average power transmitted in the dominant (lowest order) mode is 1.5 Watts. Find the maximum magnitude of the electric field

    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.
