Based on the dielectric properties it is possible to determine whether or not a material can be categorized as a simple medium.
Given the equation of polarization density
P
:
P
=
ε
0
·
X
e
·
E
where:
ε
0
: electric permittivity of free space
X
e
: electric susceptibility
E
: electric field
A material can have one or more of the following characteristics.
Linear
: if the electric susceptibility is independent of
E
.
Isotropic
: If the polarization has the same direction as
E
.
Homogenous
: If the susceptibility is independent of space coordinates.
A material is a simple medium if all three properties are satisfied.
