Question 1:how can we create a standing wave electric field?

Question 2: light is a form of electromagnetic radiation which and electric field and magnetic field component. is there any way we can use light to create standing wave electric field?

    $\begingroup$ Microwave ovens and optical cavity resonators (a.k.a., "lasers") contain electro-magnetic waves. The only structure I know of that can contain something you might call an "electric wave" would be a transmission line. $\endgroup$ – Solomon Slow Jun 11 '18 at 15:11
  • $\begingroup$ Ah ok you want just the electric field and no magnetic field. Also, tag people in your comments so they know you replied :) $\endgroup$ – Aaron Stevens Jun 11 '18 at 18:14
