Electromagnetic Waves in Material Media In a material medium free charges may be present , which generate a current under the influence of the wave electric field . The current J c is related to the electric field E through the conductivity σ as The material may also have specific relative values of dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability

Maxwell’s equations become In phasor notation, it is as if the material conductivity introduces an imaginary part for the dielectric constant ε . The wave equation for the phasor electric field is given by We have assumed that the net charge density is zero , even if a conductivity is present, so that the electric field divergence is zero.
