### Two Dimensional Hodge Decomposition

In deriving the equation governing propagation of wave in a wave guide, a specific form of Hodge decomposition theorem is used. The Hodge decomposition theorem applied in two dimensions allows us to ...

### Why do we use wires/conductors to transport energy?

I am currently studying Maxwell equations and I learned that copper wires are essentially just wave guides for EM waves. Why do we not use an insulator to guide the wave and transport the energy which ...

### How to get single mode propagation using the Wave propagation method?

I am trying to simulate single mode waveguide using wave propogation method but when launching the beam inside I get the Tablot effect (like in MMI). I have adjusted the refractive indexes and the ...

### Steven Weinberg says $L$ is the fundamental EM wavelength in a cubical cavity $L^3;$ not the typically asserted $2L.$

This is from Steven Weinberg's Lectures on Quantum Mechanics, 2nd Ed., page 2: For instance, for a cubical box of width $L,$ whatever boundary condition is satisfied on one face of the box must be ...

### How is certain area of waveguide becomes visible to user?

I was reading an article and came across this image As shown, image becomes visible to eye after reaching a specific area of the glass. But how does it work? Why is it being reflected at such a weird ...

### Validity of flat coupling approximation in input-output theory + why is it called Markov approximation?

In standard input-output theory, we model the interaction between light and a two level system by the following hamiltonian which assumes rotating wave approximation: The interaction between a ...

### Can a metallic rectangular waveguide support hybrid modes?

Studying the basics of guided waves in metallic rectangular waveguides, filled with homogenous dielectric material, I see that there is always a distinction between TE and TM modes. I understand that ...

### How is magnetic flux viewed in QED?

I know that QED is formulated in terms of Lagrangian density. So when we solve for a physical system we ultimately ends up finding $\psi$ and $A_{\mu}$. I'm not interested in $\psi$ for now. Since I ...

### Magnetic Field Distribution in TEM (TransverseElectroMagnetic) Modes

in many books (Electromagnetics, M. Notarov; Foundations for Microwave Engineering, Collin; Microwave Engineering, Pozar etc) I have read that in a certain waveguide or transmission line, the ...

### Why is the magnitude of the electric field dependent only on $x$ and $y$ coordinates?

So I am reading a book on electromagnetism and in it they are assuming that the magnitude of the electric field is dependent only on $x$ and $y$ coordinates in a waveguide and I wanted to know why ...
