The region between a pair of parallel perfectly conducting planes of infinite extent in the y and z directions is partially filled with a dielectric as shown in Figure. A 30 GHz $$T{E_{10}}$$ wave is incident on the air dielectric interface as shown. Find the
VSWR at the interface.

In an air-filled rectangular waveguide, the vector electric field is given by
$$\mathop E\limits^ \to = \cos \,(20\,\pi \,y)\,\exp \,\,\left[ { - j\left( {{{40\,\,\pi } \over 3}} \right)\,z\, + j\,\omega \,t} \right]\,\hat i\,\,\,V/m$$

Find the vector magnetic field and the phase velocity of the wave inside the waveguide.

A rectangular hollow metal waveguide is required to be so designed to propagate a 9375 MHz signal in its $$T{E_{10}}$$-mode that the guide-wavelength equals the cut-off wavelength. Calculate the value of 'a' (breadth or the wider dimension of the waveguide). Take b = a/2. Also, calculate the cut-off frequency of the next higher order mode.
