©AGK 2005 ECSE 352 3.4-2 Overview In this class we will introduce a way of describing the propagation of EM waves in arbitrary directions in space through the use of the wave-vector k . This will allow us to calculate the magnitude of the electric and magnetic fields at any location. These plane waves are described as transverse electromagnetic (TEM) waves. This is an important concept which will arise many times during the course.
