It is said that the wave whose polarization is parallel to the wire, gets absorbed by the wire.
But, there is empty space between the wires. So, that part of the above - said wave which passes through the empty space will not get absorbed by the wire. So, the transmitted wave must have the wave whose polarization is parallel to the wire.
On the other hand, some part (maybe small) of all of the wave with polarization perpendicular to the wire should get absorbed by the wires.
So, the resultant transmitted wave should have the wave with both kinds of polarization.
The books which I have come across leave the above-mentioned ideas.
Could anyone please clarify it?
