The higher-order modes in asymmetric transverse electromagnetic (TEM) cells are considered; in particular, field expressions are developed and catalogued. These may be used to examine scattering and reflection from test objects and discontinuities. The results are applied to the termination reflection in a large tapered cell. Experiment and theory agree well and aid in understanding perturbations to the desired TEM mode field distribution.
