TE11 Mode

TE10 mode of rectangular waveguide

TE11 mode of circular waveguide

The dominant mode of circular waveguide is the TE11 mode.

The TE11 mode can be thought of as an evolution of the TE10 mode of rectangular waveguide as the boundary changes shape.

Assume that Fz is order 1 as the

frequency increases.

Goal: We wish to study the high-frequency dependence of attenuation on frequency for circular waveguide modes, and show the interesting behavior of the TE01 mode (the loss decreases as frequency increases).

Attenuation Property (cont.) The TE01 mode was studied extensively as a candidate for long-range communications but was not competitive with antennas. Also, fiber-optic cables eventually became available with lower loss than the TE01 mode. It is still useful for some applications (e.g., high power).

From the beginning, the most obvious application of waveguides had been as a communications medium. It had been determined by both Schelkunoff and Mead, independently, in July 1933, that an axially symmetric electric wave (TE01) in circular waveguide would have an attenuation factor that decreased with increasing frequency [44]. This unique characteristic was believed to offer a great potential for wide-band, multichannel systems, and for many years to come the development of such a system was a major focus of work within the waveguide group at BTL. It is important to note, however, that the use of waveguide as a long transmission line never did prove to be practical, and Southworth eventually began to realize that the role of waveguide would be somewhat different than originally expected. In a memorandum dated October 23, 1939, he concluded that microwave radio with highly directive antennas was to be preferred to long transmission lines. Thus, he wrote, we come to the conclusion that the hollow, cylindrical conductor is to be valued primarily as a new circuit element, but not yet as a new type of toll cable [45]. It was as a circuit element in military radar that waveguide technology was to find its first major application and to receive an enormous stimulus to both practical and theoretical advance.
