Fractional curl operator has been utilized to study the fractional waveguide. The fractional waveguide may be regarded as intermediate step between the two given waveguides. The two given waveguides are related through the principle of duality. Behavior of field lines in fractional waveguides are studied withresp ect to fractional parameter α.
