Rectangular Waveguide -Animation

What is Rectangular Waveguide?

 Rectangular waveguides are the one of the earliest type of the transmission lines. They are used in many applications. A lot of components such as isolators, detectors, attenuators, couplers and slotted lines are available for various standard waveguide bands between 1 GHz to above 220 GHz.

A rectangular waveguide supports TM and TE modes but not TEM waves because we cannot define a unique voltage since there is only one conductor in a rectangular waveguide.

The shape of a rectangular waveguide is as shown below. A material with permittivity e and permeability m fills the inside of the conductor.

A rectangular waveguide cannot propagate below some certain frequency. This frequency is called the cut-off frequency.

Modes of operation: 

Transverse Electric Mode

Transverse Magnetic Mode

Hardwork Can Never Ever Fails..
Best Luck...
