The numerical electric susceptibility corresponding to (5) is derived as follows:
Thus, the interaction of electromagnetic waves with single-phase multiferroic materials the electric susceptibility ([[chi].sub.e]) and magnetic susceptibility ([[chi].sub.m]) are densities of their dipoles related to the interaction with each other through their magnetic (M) and electric (P) fields, respectively.
[[epsilon].sub.0] is the vacuum permittivity, [delta](t) the Dirac delta function, and [[chi].sub.e]([bar.r], t) the time domain electric susceptibility function.
