Charged Particles in Bianisotropic Media


  • J. A. Kong


Both electric and magnetic fields are shown to be present for charged particles at rest in bianisotropic media. A bianisotropic medium can be realized by a moving medium, a Tellegen medium, or a magnetoelectric medium. The coexistence of both fields may lead to radiation of energy for certain kinds of constitutive parameters that specify the properties of the medium. Electromagnetic field solutions of a charged particle in a Tellegen medium and a uniformly moving uniaxial medium are calculated. Physical implications of the various results are discussed.
