### Why there are spikes in permittivity Vs. frequency curve?

When the frequency is increased the permittivity of a dielectric material decreases. But in the way of decrease there are some spikes which indicates sudden increase of permittivity for certain ...

### Relation between dipole moment and polarisaton

In the Landau's book "Electrodynamics of Continuous Media" he derives the relation between the polarisation $\vec P$ and the dipole moment $\vec p$. Starting with the definition of the dipole moment: ...

### Dielectric sphere placed in another dielectric medium with uniform external field: is there a surface charge density?

Consider a dielectric sphere placed within a dielctric medium. There is a uniform electric field $E_0$ present throughout in the medium. Would there be surface charge on the sphere?

### Charging capacity and capacitance of a conductor

I know that charging capacity of a conductor is the maximum charge a conductor can hold And capacitance is the ability of a conductor to hold charge in a given potential . But how are these two ...

### The effect of an electric field on capacitance

Decreasing the distance between the two parallel plates of a capacitor increases the amount of charge that can be held on each plate. If this is because the charges are attracted to each other and ...

### I want to use the complex susceptibility to prove that E dot J is independent of the real part

As stated above, I want to use $\chi$=$\chi'$-i$\chi''$ to prove that E$\cdot$J is related to $\chi''$ and independent of $\chi'$. I need to do this using a monochromatic field E(t)=E($\omega$)*exp(...

### dielectric polarization

Suppose a small solid sphere made of an isotropic dielectric is introduced in the field of some given system of remote charges. Assuming that the polarization in the dielectric does not affect the ...

### Direction of polarization in dielectrics

Our teacher just taught us polarization in dielectric materials. I have some doubts that he wasn't able to clear. Is the direction of polarization, for any non-linear dielectric, in the direction of ...

### what can be the BG and dielectric constant of monolayer MoS2 in semiconducting state (2H) and in metallic state (1T)

Monolayer MoS2 is a semiconductor that can undergo an MIT (Metal to insulator) or semiconducting state to insulating state transition. The semiconducting state is referred as 2H State and the metallic ...

### Qualitative understanding of excess heat capacity in ferroics

I'm looking to understand what an excess heat capacity in a ferroelectric (FE) can correspond to qualitatively. Typically one starts with a Landau expansion of the free energy if you want to study the ...

### Calculating rise in water surface due to a charged capacitor

﻿Two metal plates separated by a distance d & initially charged with charge +Q & -Q are kept so that it just touches the surface of a very large water tank as shown in figure a. Thus water ...

### Density of polarisation charge is zero always for linear isotropic homogeneous dielectrics?

It seems to me that the volumetric density of polarisation charge in a linear homogeneous isotropic dielectric in an external field is always zero, but I find this rather surprising. Consider such ...
