Unformatted text preview: Chapter 10 Electromagnetic Wave Propagation in Isotropic Materials Different materials afiect the propagation of electromagnetic waves in different and important ways. Materials can slow the waves, reflect them, redirect them, trap them, attenuate them, and even absorb them. This chapter classifies materials according to their conductivities and permittivities to determine their effects in each case. August 25, 2009 10.1 Propagation in Dielectric Materials with Purely Real Permittivities The simplest change we can make from propagation in free space is to consider mate— rials 1n which the permittivity is a real constant differing from that of a vacuum, 60. The displacement current in phasor form 1s J— - waE for harmonic oscillations, and since no and s are purely real, J 1s 90° out of phase with E. This same temporal rela- tionship exists for a vacuum for which 5 — so and the analysis of the wave equation is identical, except for 5 replacing so. This leads to k2(w) = w2po€ => k(w) = :l:w,/p.oe As in the vacuum case, the wavenumber k is purely real, since no and s are real numbers and very little changes in the earlier results. If n is difl'erent from #0 as well, then clearly, k(w) = :lszue The phase velocity and impedance formulas are, respectively, m/s and 17: thms 1 VIE E 10.1 cu U¢=E ...

    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.
