30) with σ% = iωε% . 4. Returning to the definition of the polarisation P, it can be seen that in reality, both conduction currents and displacement currents flow. 7 Energy in a dielectric In a lossy dielectric the total current is given by the sum of J c = σ E and J d = iωε E . 35) where δ is the angle between the conduction and displacement currents, referred to as the loss angle. In a perfectly insulating (non-lossy) dielectric, the loss angle is zero. If the complex permittivity is written as ε% = ε ′ − iε ′′ , the loss angle can also be written as tanδ = ε ′′ / ε ′ .
3 Sphere of radius a centred on the origin, with an applied electric field anti-parallel to the z-axis. The spherical polar co-ordinates are defined as shown, making the problem two dimensional in r and θ. 32) gives the same boundary condition but with the permittivities replaced by complex values. By extrapolation from Lorrain et al. f. 12). 7) This is the effective dipole moment of the sphere. 8) Using this equation, the magnitude of the dipole for a particle can be calculated. Taking for example a field of 106 V m−1, the dipole moment of a particle such as a cell is of the order of 10−19 C m.
