Guided Propagation between two Metallic Planes
Wave guides are classified
in two categories: closed guides and opened guides. This course
permits to understand the fundamental differences between opened guides
and closed guides.
One issue in
propagation in opened guides is the refraction. To illustrate this
phenomenon through simulations, the ray method could be used. The first
lesson shows the maximum angle above which there is a refraction
phenomenon. In the second lesson, we will see how a rectangular
closed guide can be single mode and especially understand how the cut
frequency of different modes varies with the dimension of the guide.
Finally, lesson three presents how an optic fiber can work and
especially understand how to make the light staying inside the fiber
(i.e. non-dispersive fibre).
