1 ECE 303 – Fall 2007 – Farhan Rana – Cornell University Lecture 25 Guided Waves in Parallel Plate Metal Waveguides In this lecture you will learn: • Parallel plate metal waveguides •TE and TM guided modes in waveguides ECE 303 – Fall 2007 – Farhan Rana – Cornell University Parallel Plate Metal Waveguides d W z • Consider a parallel plate waveguide (shown above) • We have studied such structures in the context of transmission lines • We know that they can guide TEM waves ( T ransverse E lectric and M agnetic) in which both the electric and magnetic fields point in direction perpendicular to the propagation direction • But these structures can guide more than just the TEM waves that we have considered so far ………….
