Hello,the hollow waveguide bellow has a=109mm b=43mm L=100mm Er=1
from the formula bellow
For TE21 i get cutoff frequency of 4.4Ghz as shown bellow.
I have defined both port on waveguide ends as shown bellow
but as you can see from simulation result is get m=2 n=1 at cutoff frequency of 2.8Ghz.
Where did i go wrong?
Thanks.

I'm a bit rusty on this, but years ago when I was calculating waveguide cutoffs, we used to use the Rayleigh Quotient to get a stationary estimator (second order accurate) of the cutoff frequency. You could get reasonably accurate estimates of the cutoff with pretty rough estimates of the fields.
