Maxwell’s Equations

in linear isotropic homogeneous lossless media

Constitutive

Gauss‘s

Law

Faraday’s Law:

0

Ampere’s Law:

0

Second derivative in space  second derivative in time,

therefore solution is any function with identical dependencies

on space and time (up to a constant)

Solutions of the Wave Equation

Possible solutions are many Try Uniform Plane Wave (UPW), e.g. assume:

1)

0

0

2)

3)

E+(t – z/ν)

Sinusoidal Uniform Plane Wave (UPW) in +z direction

General solution:

Ey(z,t) = E+(t - z/v) [V/m]

One special solution:

where

To find the magnetic field:

Complex notation phasors

Complex Notation (Phasors)

Complex notation for a single frequency (f = /2)

“Phasor”: contains all amplitude, vector,

spatial and phase information

UPW case

Time domain E
