Prior to the improvement of lasers, all on hand mild resources, no matter if utilized in laboratories or present in nature, generated mild which underwent uncontrollable fluctuations inherent within the emission procedure. Such fluctuations are hazardous to many purposes. This impression is nearly thoroughly suppressed in laser radiation, making it attainable to take advantage of lasers for various purposes.

Before proceeding with a simplification of Eq. 119), it is worth noting that the real dielectric function ε that appears in Maxwell's equations is a longitudinal dielectric function. 120) This is the reason for the relative simplicity of Eq. 113). It is clear from Eq. 120) that the dielectric function appearing in Maxwell's equations is a longitudinal dielectric function. Thus ε and the corresponding complex dielectric function έ will now be designated as eL and êL. 8 shows how one is led to the definition given by Eq.

Suppose we are concerned with the longitudinal response of the system to a longitudinal perturbation. We want to know eL(q, ω). A longitudinal perturbation causes a longitudinal induced current. We can pick out the longitudinal component of the induced current density by just taking the scalar product of J md (q, ω) with the unit vector q/q in the direction of propagation q. 126) where J];nd(q9co) is a scalar quantity. We can now make a vector out of «/îndiq»ω) by just multiplying it by the unit vector.

A band diagram for the noble metals is shown schematically in Fig. 16. The d bands lie several volts below the Fermi energy. Thus, only interband transitions of conduc­ tion electrons are possible at low energies, and an onset of interband 58 Chapter 3 Absorption and Dispersion transitions from the d bands to higher-lying conduction band states takes place in the visible or ultraviolet. 35) where ε / and ε2 are described by Eqs. 31) and ε ^ and s2h are described by Eqs. 15). Band structure effects are included by using an effective mass in these equations rather than using the free-electron mass.
