Implicit in these expressions was that the wave propagates in free space in which m → 0 and µm → µ0 .

Whereas temporal frequency is a concept quite familiar to engineering students, spatial frequency may be new. 6 Two “snapshots” of a sinusoidally varying electromagnetic wave. By examining the variation of the wave at a fixed point in space (the snapshot in space, left) we see a temporal variation with a period ωt = 2π. If we look at the wave at a fixed point in time (the snapshot in time, right), the spatial variation has a period kz = 2π. 7 The direction of movement of an electromagnetic wave in time or space as a function of the polarity of the ωt or kz argument.

The Scotsman James Clerk Maxwell (1831–1879) first unified the known relationships between electric and magnetic fields in his eponymous equations in 1873, from which it appeared that electromagnetic fields could propagate as waves with a velocity suspiciously identical to the known speed of light (Maxwell, 1861). Maxwell’s ideas were singularly unpopular, particularly in Britain, and it was a promi- FoM Engineering January 4, 2010 15:29 Char Count= 0 6 nent German physicist, Hermann von Helmholtz (1821–1894) who indirectly supported Maxwell’s conclusions by offering a prize to anyone who could verify his predictions.
