A little "light" reading; Revise your understanding of plane wave propagation This month’s image is taken from the (full version) of the article that begins on page 30 of this issue. If you have not given any thought to electromagnetic wave propagation since college, this article might provide a novel insight. As the author says; “If you have studied electromagnetic (EM) field theory, you may know that somehow the electric and magnetic fields in a propagating EM wave generate each other to create a self-sustaining wave. Few people who get that far in their studies can follow the math. Among those who can follow the math, few understand how it works.” 3 EDN Europe | MAY 2015 www.edn-europe.com
