Unformatted text preview: AGK 2005 ECSE 352 3.4-1 AGK@2005 Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering ECSE 352 Electromagnetic Waves and Optics 3.4-1 Click to edit Master subtitle style 3.4 Wave propagation in arbitrar y directions References: Section 13.4 AGK 2005 ECSE 352 3.4-2 Overview I n this class we will introduce a way of describing the propagation of EM waves in arbitrar y 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 impor tant concept which will arise many times during the course. AGK 2005 ECSE 352 3.4-3 Learning outcomes After taking this class you should be able to: Describe what is meant by the wavefront of a plane wave Define a transverse electromagnetic (TEM) wave Define the wavevector Apply the concept of the wave-vector to calculate wave propagation in three dimensional space AGK 2005 ECSE 352 3.4-4 Contents The derivation of the magnetic (H) field The concept of wave-impedance Transverse EM waves (TEM) The wave-vector and wave propagation in arbitrar y directions AGK 2005...
