The central feature of a waveguide is that the waves phase match in the propa-

to reconstruct themselves and form a sustained waveﬁeld. There are two sets of
plane waves in a guide, as indicated in Fig. 6.1 – one propagating downward
and one upward. The members of each set are referred to as partial waves, just
as were the individual plane waves in each cell of the periodic structure exam-
ined in Section 1.4. Those that propagate downward are indicated by the solid
lines and those that propagate upward by the dashed ones. The downward and

the solid lines indicate the downward propagating set. These rays are shown in the
slowness diagram to the right. Note that phase matching must occur in the x1 direction.

respectively. The term γ is given by (6.6). We have, at this stage, assumed
only that (γ)≥0. From our previous work, given in Section 3.2, we can,
by a slight modiﬁcation of that calculation, show that the reﬂection coefﬁcient
at x2=±h is one. Each upward propagating wave must be reﬂected into a
downward propagating one and vice versa. Therefore, at the upper and lower
boundaries,

respectively. The terms A and B are constants. For these two equations to hold
simultaneously, the following must be true:

γh=mπ/2,

(6.13)

and

A=B for m=2n, n=0,1,2,...

(6.14)

or

A=−B for m=2n+1, n=0,1,2,....

where βm is given by (6.4), γm =mπ/2h, and Am is 2A or 2iA. This method of
