Example text

A small length of conducting wire connects two conducting spheres separated by distance r0 and oriented in the z∼ direction. Oscillatory current flows in the wire so that I t = I0 eiwt , where measurable current is the real part of this function. The harmonic time-dependent current is related to the charge on the spheres by I t = ±dQ t /dt, where Q t = Q0 ei t . The plus sign is for the upper sphere, and the minus sign is for the lower sphere. It follows that I t = ±d Q0 ei t /dt = ±i Q t , Oscillating current flow in conducting wire forms radiating dipole element Closed E-field loops Closed H-field loops Fig.

In our example, for a wave propagating in a given direction there is one longitudinal acoustic and one longitudinal optic branch with atom motion parallel to the wave propagation direction. There are also two transverse acoustic and two transverse optic branches with atom motion normal to the direction of wave propagation. To get an idea of the complexity of a real lattice vibration dispersion relation, consider the example of GaAs. Device engineers are interested in GaAs because it is an example of a III-V compound semiconductor that is used to make laser diodes and high-speed transistors.

125) In this equation, k∼ is the unit vector in the direction of propagation of the wave and U is the energy density. 127) When we introduce quantum mechanics, we will make use of this expression to suggest that if light energy is quantized then so is the momentum carried by light. 3 Choosing a potential Electric and magnetic fields are related to a potential in a more complex way than we have discussed so far. In general, Maxwell’s equations allow electric and magnetic fields to be described in terms of a scalar potential V r t and a vector potential A r t .
