Abstract

A procedure is described for obtaining the cutoff wave numbers of transverse electric (TE) and transverse magnetic (TM) modes in waveguides of arbitrary cross section. A surface integral equation approach is used in which the E-field equation has been transformed into a matrix equation using the method of moments. An iterative technique is used to pick the eigenvalues of the solution matrix which corresponds to the waveguide cutoff wave numbers. The salient features of this technique are its speed, its simplicity, and the absence of any spurious modes when waveguides of arbitrary cross section are treated. The first four modes are tabulated for various waveguides, and the results are in very good agreement with published data.
