If the wave is generated by a vertical wire antenna (H ﬁeld horizontal), then the wave is said to be vertically polarised; a wire antenna parallel to the ground (E ﬁeld horizontal) primarily generates waves that are horizontally polarised. The waves described so far have been linearly polarised, since the electric ﬁeld vector has a single direction along the whole of the propagation axis. If two plane waves of equal amplitude and orthogonal polarisation are combined with a 90 phase difference, the resulting wave will be circularly polarised (CP), in that the motion of the electric ﬁeld vector will describe a circle centred on the propagation vector.
2 How far must a plane wave of frequency 60 GHz travel in order for the phase of the wave to be retarded by 180 in a lossless medium with r ¼ 1 (a non-magnetic medium) and "r ¼ 3:5? 3 What is the average power density carried in a plane wave with electric ﬁeld amplitude 10 V mÀ1? What electric and magnetic ﬁeld strengths are produced when the same power density is carried by a plane wave in a lossless non-magnetic medium with "r ¼ 4:0? 5 m through a non-magnetic material with constants ¼ 1000, "r ¼ 10?
