Effective Medium Theory: Principles and Applications

Tuck C. Choy

Abstract

Effective medium theory dates back to the early days of the theory of electricity. Faraday in 1837 proposed one of the earliest models for a composite metal-insulator dielectric and around 1870 Maxwell and later Garnett (1904) developed models to describe a composite or mixed material medium. The subject has been developed considerably since and while the results are useful for predicting materials performance, the theory can also be used in a wide range of problems in physics and materials engineering. This book develops the topic of effective medium theory by bringing together the essentials ... More

Keywords: effective medium, Maxwell-Garnett, electromagnetic, electrolytes, cloaking, static, dynamic, materials, composite
