The author's report on the observation of a new type of Bragg confined mode in a dielectric loaded cavity. The structure is built from a hollow single layer dielectric cylinder loaded in a silver plated copper cavity. A resonance was observed at 13.4 GHz with an unloaded Q-factor of order 2 x105 , which is more than a factor of 6 above the dielectric loss limit. Previously such modes have only been realized from pure Transverse Electric modes with no azimuthal variations and only the E component. From simulations using a rigorous numeric technique it is shown that the mode has non-zero azimuthal variations and with dominant Er and E electric field components and Hz magnetic field component.
