(under the class definition) Wave transmission systems comprising means for changing guided waves having one field configuration to a different field configuration, the original and changed waves each having a longitudinal electric or magnetic field component.
(1) Note. This subclass includes means for changing a rectangular TE wave pattern to a circular TE wave pattern, e.g. for changing a plane polarized guided wave to a circularly polarized guided wave, or from one type of polarized wave to another.
