Take ed = 260, Jud = #0: and assume the wave frequency to be 350 GHZ. a) What modes propagate in the guide? b} For the lowest order TE mode, graph the two curves that a: and 5% must satisfy. c) Estimate am fix, and then the wave phase velocity in the z—direction and compare it quantitatively to the intrinsic wave phase velocity in the air and dielectric {the intrinsic wave velocities in unbounded media}. d) What is the highest frequency that can be used with this guide without exciting multiple propa— gating modes?

Evaluate the idea of using a 500—In long section of aluminum waveguide (CrC = 3.54 X10T S / In) to deliver power from the transmitter to the antenna. Consider using a rectangular waveguide with dimensions 10 x 5 cm to carry the T1310 mode. a) If we desire single mode propagation, is this waveguide suitable for this operating frequency? 13) Determine the loss, in dB, for the signal passing through the waveguide. Neglect dielectric losses. Is the loss significant? c) Suppose we want to transmit pulses with a pulse length of 6.66 ns Wraith-0W) Will the effects of dispersion be significant?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
