propagation mode

propagation mode

[′präp·ə′gā·shən ‚mōd]
(electromagnetism)
A form of propagation of electromagnetic radiation in a periodic beamguide in which the field distributions over cross sections of the beam are identical at positions separated by one period of the guide.

However, during cascaded operation of the proposed full adder, operating in the carry propagation mode, the speed performance of the adder deteriorates with increase in the number of adder stages.
Additionally, the propagation mode supports ease-of-use of the shear wave mapping for repetitive scans.
The transmitted optical signals in each propagation mode are combined at the receiver-side of the optical fiber and an output optical signal is created, but the high-speed characteristics of output optical signal degrade over longer distances due to the different speeds in different propagation modes.
We can observe a change in the propagation mode in the 10-100 GHz band and the ground plane is found to be unnecessary above 50 GHz.
8 GHz illustrated in Figure 5(d), multipath conical radiation pattern with a separation in near-broadside direction is present introduced by the propagation mode [TM.
The transmission properties are clearly improved with this configuration, the propagation mode is not affected by the accident posed by the corners, allowing the wave to follow the direction of bends.
In these regions the films were stretched equibiaxially, but the propagation mode of necking was sequential equibiaxial not simultaneous equibiaxial.
The SAW propagation mode is characterized by velocities typically five orders of magnitude below electromagnetic waves with amplitudes in the order of nanometers and wavelengths in micrometers.
According to Heideman, "Through a combination of micromachining and integrated optic technology, the propagation mode that exits the waveguide can be better matched to the optical fiber.
The FCC web site has some curves for this propagation mode.
For example, for microstrip applications the resonator radius and coupling transmission line width must be replaced by effective microstrip dimensions;[6,12-14] for waveguide applications the propagation mode is [TE.
This comparison has shown good agreement (a Gaussian shape) as expected, except for the secondary small propagation mode.
