H-Bend Waveguide 3D

Application ID: 1421

These examples show how to model a rectangular waveguide for microwaves in 2D and 3D. A single hollow waveguide can conduct two kinds of electromagnetic waves: transversal magnetic (TM) or transversal electric (TE) waves.

The models examine a TE wave that has no electric field component in the direction of propagation. More specifically, for the models, you select the frequency and waveguide dimension so that TE10 is the single propagating mode. In that mode the electric field has only one nonzero component—a sinusoidal with two nodes, one at each of the walls of the waveguide.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
