Electromagnetic fields in a dielectric material follow the wave equation, Eq. (11.23), since there is no electric charge in the material. This chapter covers the property of electromagnetic fields described by this equation. For simplicity, we focus only on the electric field and assume that it has only a y-component varying only along the x-axis. Thus, Eq. (11.23) reduces to
