Consider homogeneous mediums with non-symmetric dielectric properties, i.e., materials where ɛij≠ ɛij. Examples are magnetized materials with non-cubic symmetry, or free-charge-carriers in semiconductors subjected to an arbitrarily oriented external magnetic field (Sect. 2.6). The dielectric function tensor ɛ is then composed of a symmetric (s) and an anti-symmetric (a) tensor1 (magneto-optic materials)
