Unformatted text preview: 30 Guide impedance and TL analogies TE mode fields: H x =- jk z H z x k 2- k 2 z , H y =- jk z H z y k 2- k 2 z , E y = j o H z x k 2- k 2 z , E x =- j o H z y k 2- k 2 z . TM mode fields: H x = j o E z y k 2- k 2 z , H y =- j o E z x k 2- k 2 z , E y =- jk z E z y k 2- k 2 z , E x =- jk z E z x k 2- k 2 z . The above relations between the transverse components of TE and TM mode fields imply that TE case: E x H y = E y- H x = o k z = o /k 1- f 2 c f 2 = o 1- f 2 c f 2 TE . TM case: E x H y = E y- H x = k z o = k 1- f 2 c f 2 o = o 1- f 2 c f 2 TM . 1 The guide impedances defined above can be used to set up transmission line models for waveguide circuits in which the parameters TE and TM for each mode play the same role as the characteristic impedance Z o in TL theory. For example, two waveguides in cascade with different values of TE can be quarter-wave matched by inserting a quarter-wave section having a guide impedance equal to the geometric means of the two guides. For dielectric-field guides replace o by the appropriate , and also in calculating the length of the quarter-wave section use g = 2 k z appro- priate for that section (see HW). Note that, using the cutoff wavelength, we have TE case: TE = o 1- f 2 c f 2 = o 1- 2 2 c TM case: TM = o 1- f 2 c f 2 = o 1- 2 2 c . 2 Example 2: Consider an air-filled rectangular waveguide with a = 3 cm and b = 1 cm. Determine the TE 10 mode fields for the guide from the results of Example 1 of Lect 29 assuming that at the operation frequency the free-space wavelength is = 3 cm....
