A TRT refractive index?

    How can the radiation of electrons in the TRT be described/explained with transition between media of different refractive indices?

    the wikipedia does not refer to refractive indices, but rather talks of inhomogeneous media.

    But it does refer to dielectric constants. Do you know the relationship between refractive index and dielectric constant?
