This lecture introduces the student to the Lorentz model which describes the dielectric response of materials and Drude model which describes metals. The lecture gives physical insight as to why materials have a dielectric and magnetic response and some implications of this.
This course by Dr. Raymond C. Rumpf is intended to teach students about electromagnetic devices and how they may look and operate in coming decades. Special attention will be paid to periodic structures, metamaterials, and structures fabricated by 3D printing. Devices will be designed and analyzed using tools developed during the prerequisite course “Computational Electromagnetics” as well as some new tools developed in this course.
