TE wave vs TM wave

This page compares TE wave vs TM wave and describes difference between TE wave and TM wave. Both of this wave modes exist in hollow metal based rectangular waveguide. These are the modes of propagation of electromagnetic waves. In this structure no TEM mode exists.

TE wave is referred as Transverse Electric Wave mode. Here E field is wholly transverse to the waveguide meaning perpendicular to the broad dimension of the waveguide.

TM wave is referred as Transverse Magnetic Wave mode. Here H field is wholly transverse to the waveguide meaning perpendicular to the broad dimension of the waveguide..

TE mode impedance vs TM mode impedance

The figure mentions the TE mode impedance and TM mode impedance equations.
