TE mode does not exist but TM =TEM does and it is disper sionless. All TE m and TM m modes are dispersive for m 1 , and propagate only if f > f c , or, equivalently, < c . Nonpropagating modes are evanescent and have an attenuation constant  k z  . 1 Also TE m and TE m mode fields have guide impedances TE = E y H x = o 1 f 2 c f 2 and TM = E x H y = o 1 f 2 c f 2 relating the transverse field components of the guided modes. All the results summarized above are for airfilled waveguides, but they can be readily modified, by replacing c and o with c/n and , respectively, in the case of dielectricfilled waveguides.the case of dielectricfilled waveguides....
