Plane Waves

A wave is said to be a plane wave, if
  1. The electric field Description: 22347.png and magnetic field Description: 19534.png lie in a plane perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation
  2. The fields Description: 22581.png and Description: 21957.png are perpendicular to each other

Uniform Plane Waves

A plane wave is said to be uniform plane wave if in addition to conditions (1) and (2) above,
  1. Description: 24437.png and Description: 18727.png are uniform in the plane perpendicular to the direction of propagation (i.e., Description: 21340.png and Description: 24757.png vary only in the direction of propagation)
