I want to know if the orientational polarization should be included when you calculate the permittivity of the silicon oxide (both crystal and amorphous)?
Polar liquids have orientational polarization at frequencies that are not too high.hjq_seu said:In most solid there are three kinds of polarization that may contribute to the permittivity,viz Eletronic polarization,orientational polarization and Atomic ploraization.
Pieter Kuiper said:Polar liquids have orientational polarization at frequencies that are not too high.
That is why water has such a high relative dielectric constant (about 80).
But the static dielectric constant of ice is only 3.
