Dear friends,

I'd like to know if there exists an electromagnetic wave that magnetic field is not perpendicular to electric field.

Thanks.

If you have a "regular" EM wave, with E perp B,
then add a uniform constant E-field in the region,
the resulting E is no longer perpendicular to B.

Or are you looking for a "less trivial" situation?

Hello lightgrav:

I'm looking for this posibility, if there's probably or simply teoretical possible that one electro-magnetic wave could have his components not orthogonal. If not, if there's any type of wave that could be this way.

Thanks.
