# Nonlocal Effective Electromagnetic Wave Characteristics of Composite Media: Beyond the Quasistatic Regime

@article{Torquato2020NonlocalEE, title={Nonlocal Effective Electromagnetic Wave Characteristics of Composite Media: Beyond the Quasistatic Regime}, author={Salvatore Torquato and Jaeuk Kim}, journal={Physical Review X}, year={2020}, volume={11} }

We derive exact nonlocal expressions for the effective dielectric constant tensor ${\boldsymbol \varepsilon}_e({\bf k}_I, \omega)$ of disordered two-phase composites and metamaterials from first principles. This formalism extends the long-wavelength limitations of conventional homogenization estimates of ${\boldsymbol \varepsilon}_e({\bf k}_I, \omega)$ for arbitrary microstructures so that it can capture spatial dispersion well beyond the quasistatic regime (where $\omega$ and ${\bf k}_I$ are…
