1 ECE 303 – Fall 2005 – Farhan Rana – Cornell University Lecture 19 Non-Normal Incidence of Waves at Interfaces In this lecture you will learn: • What happens when waves strike an interface between two different media coming at an angle • Reflection and transmission of waves at interfaces • Application of E-field and H-field boundary conditions • Total internal reflection • Brewster’s angle ECE 303 – Fall 2005 – Farhan Rana – Cornell University Waves at Interfaces – TE and TM Waves z =0 z i k r E i H i o i µ ε o t x Transverse Electric (TE) wave Plane of Incidence: The plane containing the incident wavevector and a vector that is normal to the interface is called the plane of incidence (in the figure above the x-z plane is the plane of incidence) i k r TE Wave: If the E-field of the wave is perpendicular to the plane of incidence then the wave is called a TE-wave TM Wave: If the H-field of the wave is perpendicular to the plane of incidence then the wave is called a TM-wave i k r E i H i Transverse Magnetic (TM) wave
