(b) From Maxwell equations, -∇ 2 E = ω 2 c 2 1 + 4 πiσ ω E , σ xx = σ yy = σ 0 1 - i ( ω ω c ) τ . Look for a solution of this form E x ( k, t ) = E 0 e - i ( kz - ωt ) . Plugging in, k 2 c 2 = ω 2 ˆ 1 - ω 2 p ω 1 ω ω c + i/τ ! = ω 2 ² ( ω ) , where ² ( ω ) = 1 - ω 2 p ω 1 ω ω c + i/τ , ω 2 p = 4 πne 2 m . (c) For polarization E y = iE x , ² ( ω ) = 1 - ω 2 p ω 1 ω - ω c + i/τ . (SKETCH/PLOT?...) Assuming ω p c 1 and ω c τ 1, for large ω , one can rewrite the above eq. as ² ( ω ) = 1 - ω p ω 1 ω ω p - ω c ω p + i τω p 1 - ω p ω 1 ω ω p = 1 - ω 2 p ω 2 , which is positive for ω > ω p , and real solutions for k exist. For small but positive ω , one has ² ( ω ) = 1 + ω 2 p ω 1 ω c - ω - i/τ , which, if

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
