2 Anisotropic Media So far you have been dealing with materials that “looked” the same in all directions (i.e. isotropic) and the D-field is related to the E-field by one scalar number – the dielectric permittivity: Now consider a material whose molecules can easily be polarized by E-fields in the z-direction, but don’t respond much to E-fields in the x- and y-directions () r E r P r E r D o ε = + = 7 Rana and Swartz 06/5/25 Electromagnetic Fields and Waves – Fall 2009 Lecture 17: z x y E-field in the z - direction: strongly polarization z x y E-field in the x -or y - directions: little polarizization -ve electron cloud +ve ions Dielectric Permittivity Tensor In the most general case, the D-field is related to E-field through a
