Introduction This java applet shows combination of two linear polarized electromagnetic wave combined into a circular polarized wave propagated in the media.

  1. Red segment represent Electric Field
  2. Blue segment represent Magnetic Field
You can modify:
  1. T :period of the wave. => wavelength(lamda)=vy*T
  2. Ex: electric field magnitude of wave 1
  3. Ez: electric field magnitude of wave 2
  4. vy: wave velocity. => Ez/Bx=vy, where Bx is magnetic field magnitude
Please notice that E/B field are in phase when electromagnetic is travel in vacuum.
