Waveguides are hollow metal tubes used to transfer energy from one point to
another. The energy travels slower in a waveguide than in free space.

Copper losses can result from power (I2R) loss, in the form of heat, or skin
Dielectric losses are caused by the heating of the dielectric material between
conductors, taking power from the source.

A transmission line is either electrically long or short if its physical length is
not equal to 1/4λ for the frequency it is to carry.
