2. Metallic waveguides (TE and TM modes)
3. Dielectric waveguides (TE, TM, TEM or
hybrid modes)

UCF Modes in Waveguides (1)

Modes: certain field patterns that can


propagate independently

TEM mode: Transverse Electromagnetic


mode. All the fields are in the cross
section or there are no Ez and Hz
components
UCF Modes in Waveguides (2)
TE modes: transverse electric modes
Electric fields are in the cross section (or
no Ez component).
Only Hz component in the longitudinal
direction. Also called H modes

TM modes: transverse magnetic modes


Magnetic fields are in the cross section (or
no Hz component).
Only Ez component in the longitudinal
direction. Also called E modes
Conditions for the Existence of
UCF TEM Modes
At least two perfect electric conductors
Dielectric distribution in the cross
section is homogeneous

Yes Yes
No

Note: TEM line can have higher order


No TE and TM modes
UCF
Quasi-TEM Line
Some planar waveguide structure with
inhomogeneous dielectric distribution.

Degenerate Modes

If two or more modes have the same eigenvalue


(propagation constant kz) but different
eigenvectors (field patterns), they are called
degenerate modes.
