25 The electric and magnetic fields of a plane wave are perpendicular to the direction of propagation ^ Ic, and (,E,H,k) form an orthogonal, right-handed set of vectors. , and £2 have different phases, the tip of the electric vector traces out an ellipse in any fixed plane perpendicular to k and the wave is said to be elliptically polarized. This general case is most easily discussed if we choose a coordinate system in which the z-axis coincides with the direction of propagation k_ and e, , £~ are in tne directions Ox, Oy respectively.
