I enjoin the reader to post comments on the papers listed. Two of these papers appear in B's You Say AC, He Says DC: I'm Thunderstruckon page 6 but are collected here for reference and commentary.…Continue

On the Percolative Nature of EEStor's Nanocomposite (a Reply to MIG's Thread)

Started this discussion. Last reply by JCatania Feb 23. 3 Replies

The type of modelling MIG presents of an RC ladder network certainly has some merit in modelling nanocomposites. For instance we do not know the Equivalent Circuit of the nanocomposite and have only…Continue

"So what's EEStor's deal with electrolytics? Do they intend to use their BT to load the electrolyte and thus increase k? What are your ideas?"

Request to Pick up the Old Jonathan Phillips Super Dielectric Thread

http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1403/1403.6862.pdfhttp://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1404/1404.7537.pdfSomeone, not too long back, posted the first paper listed. I'm not sure but I think there was a Discussion involved. Ning search does not seem to show it up. Also, the ElDorado site has a reference but I could swear to reading a thread about Philips on either…See More

Formula for refractive index of media

Posted on April 6, 2012 at 9:00am 0 Comments


In Section 4.7 (Beyond Cauchy's Formula) we have

n^2(omega) = 1 + Ne^2/m(omega0^2-omega^2),

where n is the refractive index, so n^2 = epsilon, the relative…
