3. E P s+ s- E- E+ Electric Polarisation • Apply Gauss’ Law to right and left ends of polarised dielectric • EDep = ‘Depolarising field’ • Macroscopic electric field EMac= E + EDep= E - P/o s± surface charge density Cm-2 s± = P.n n outward normal E+2dA = s+dA/o Gauss’ Law E+ = s+/2o E- = s-/2o EDep= E+ + E- = (s++ s-)/2o EDep= -P/o P = s+ = s-

4. Electric Polarisation Define dimensionless dielectric susceptibility c through P = ocEMac EMac = E– P/o oE = oEMac + P oE = oEMac + ocEMac= o (1 + c)EMac= oEMac Define dielectric constant (relative permittivity)  = 1 + c EMac = E/ E = eEMac Typical values for e: silicon 11.8, diamond 5.6, vacuum 1 Metal: e →∞ Insulator: e∞(electronic part) small, ~5, lattice part up to 20

5. Electric Polarisation Rewrite EMac = E– P/o as oEMac + P = oE LHS contains only fields inside matter, RHS fields outside Displacement field, D D = oEMac + P = oEMac= oE Displacement field defined in terms of EMac (inside matter, relative permittivity e) and E (in vacuum, relative permittivity 1). Define D = oE where  is the relative permittivity and E is the electric field

P = rpol Dz Py=0 Py=Dy y Dy Dx x

8. Gauss’ Law in Matter Differentiate -.P = rpol wrt time .∂P/∂t + ∂rpol/∂t = 0 Compare to continuity equation .j + ∂r/∂t = 0 ∂P/∂t = jpol Rate of change of polarisation is the polarisation-current density Suppose that charges in matter can be divided into ‘bound’ or polarisation and ‘free’ or conduction charges rtot = rpol + rfree

9. Gauss’ Law in Matter Inside matter .E = .Emac = rtot/o= (rpol+ rfree)/o Total (averaged) electric field is the macroscopic field -.P = rpol .(oE + P) = rfree .D = rfree Introduction of the displacement field, D, allows us to eliminate polarisation charges from any calculation. This is a form of Gauss’ Law suitable for application in matter.

10. Ampère’s Law in Matter Ampère’s Law Problem! Continuity equation A steady current implies constant charge density,so Ampère’s law is consistent with the continuity equation for steady currents Ampère’s law is inconsistent with the continuity equation (conservation of charge) when the charge density is time dependent
