This is physically unreasonable since, by supposition, the only sources of energy lie in z < 0. J(ro/2 Q) exp i[Z (;y-wt]. J(ro/2 Q)exp i [Z (~) t - wt], o}. (22) On examining (21) and (22), we see that for any fixed t the directions of both Band j alternate periodically in z, with wavelength 2n (2Y/fw)t.
