Whistler Waves Data 8/7/09. This data represents the amplitude of the signal along a line from the wave launching antenna to the end of the machine. The distance along the line is on the horizontal axis. In general, an undamped wave has a time and space variation of the form B sin(wt + kx), where w is 2pi divided by the time period, and k is 2pi divided by the wavelength (wavelength=spatial period). From this data we can measure the wavelength to be approximately 20 cm based on the separation of the peaks along the horizontal axis. The frequency of the launched wave was 58 MHz, which we knew already, but is also apparent from the vertical axis.  So the wave fronts propagate at about 1 cm per nanosecond, or 3% of the speed of light in vacuum. Note that the bumps in the intensity seem to be due to additional wavefronts from a backward-going wave, which is probably a reflection from the far end of the machine.  The first 3 pictures are components of the magnetic field in the x, y, and z directions, and the 4th picture is simply the time variation of the launched wave, which does not depend on the position of the probe.
