29) then Hz is finite and Ez = 0. The cut-off is therefore an //-type and in the limit as tends to be zero, the mode exhibits pure TE properties with A tending to infinity. 26 Cylindrical corrugated waveguides Eqn. 30) then Ez is finite and E2 = 0. The cut-off is therefore an E-type in the limit as 0 tends to zero, the mode exhibits pure TM properties with A tending to zero. Notice that for H-mode cut-off the boundary condition corresponds to that of a TE mode in a uniform waveguide of radius rx while for #-mode cut-off the boundary condition corresponds to that of a TM mode in a uniform waveguide of radius r0.

For EH l m modes, we begin at |3 = 0 with A = — °° and pure TE conditions. For the lowest order EH l m mode, the pass-band is narrow and the wave terminates with 0 = oo at the same point that the HEn mode reaches the balanced-hybrid condition. We have termed this first EH l m mode the EH n mode, but some authors, for example, Dragone [56], simply refer to this mode as 4the surface wave mode'. Such nomenclature is ambiguous for obvious reasons. The next EH l m mode, our EH 12 , remains a fast wave through the first balanced-hybrid condition where the corrugation depth is approximately A/4, it has A = 0 and behaves as a pure TM mode when the corrugation depth is A/2, it becomes a slow wave when A = + 1 and mode terminates when the corrugation depth is 3A/4.
