NNSE 618 Lecture #14 4 Propagation of electromagnetic waves in a medium Taking curl of the first equation and substituting D , and B , we will have a linear equation for electric field: Looking for solution in the form of plane wave (for a Fourier component): Substituting into the wave equation, obtain the dispersion relation in the medium (wavevector is complex) or It is convenient to introduce dielectric function with real and imaginary parts: t c c t c m 4 2 t i iqr e 0 m m 2 2 2 2 4 c c i q 4 ) , ( 2 1 i i q 2 2 2 2 4 c c i q
