Abstract

In this introductory chapter the reader is acquainted with the range of topics covered. The concept of “normal” electromagnetic waves is introduced in connection with basic problems of crystal optics. Methods are discussed, within the framework of macroscopic electrodynamics, for a theoretical investigation of these waves, making use of the dielectric-constant tensor as a characteristic of the medium. This chapter illustrates the frequency and spatial dispersion of the tensor; it indicates the main effects of spatial dispersion in crystals (gyrotropy, optical anisotropy of cubic crystals, and additional light waves). The concept of excitons and polaritons is introduced. It is shown that crystal optics with spatial dispersion, which includes all of ordinary crystal optics as a special case, is closely associated with the theory of excitons.
